In a follow-up to my last post, I’d like to address how infosec professionals can help non-security folks understand the need for security basics.
It’s up to the infosec community to reach out to engineering and manufacturing and to help them understand security risks and best practices. We need to engage in conversation. We need to gain a seat at the table so that security is not an afterthought in the era of connectivity.
The IoT environment is growing at a rapid pace, but user privacy and security are still topics that need to be addressed.
Security threats in the Internet of Things are already being discovered—and they’re more dangerous than you think.
IoT security needs to address improper device access control, lack of network security, and how to stop bad actors from stealing sensitive data.
