The article dives deep into various scenarios of data encryption protocols within corporate IoT networks to accommodate ever-changing demands for cybersecurity for businesses in different industries.
The tech market’s latest big thing is the Internet of Things, which provides a way to wirelessly connect devices to a network and transfer data without human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. The role of identity management in IoT is expanding like never before. IAM is focused on identifying people and managing access to different data types (like sensitive data, non-sensitive data, or device data). IAM helps identify devices, too, while managing user access to data, thus safeguarding against breaches and malicious activities
With the IoT global explosion already well underway, and the equally powerful increase in damaging hacks set to follow, the question is a serious one: Is it time for the federal government to get involved in forcing device manufacturers to up their security game? As expected, there are arguments on both sides of the issue.
As businesses invest in building IoT networks, they need to learn how to keep their information safe in the cloud. A few of these approaches include raising awareness and education about security risks and securing personal devices.
IoT Manufacturers Missed More than 100 Vulnerabilities in Devices Evaluated, According to New Research...
In a new, follow-up cybersecurity study of network attached storage (NAS) systems and routers since 2013, consulting and research firm Independent Security Evaluators (ISE) found 125 vulnerabilities in 13 IoT devices, reaffirming an industrywide problem of a lack of basic security diligence.
Not everyone is sold on the idea that regulations dictating security standards for IoT devices will actually improve security. A multi-pronged approach would be more effective, including manufacturer-initiated best practices and consumer education.
On this IoT For All podcast episode, Ken Munro, Partner at Pen Test Partners, shares his experience finding and disclosing security vulnerabilities by breaking embedded IoT systems.
