7 Things to Know about IoT Security
When it comes to protecting the Internet of Things (IoT), traditional cybersecurity approaches are difficult to integrate and often don’t keep pace with operational IoT devices. While many security practices for embedded devices work by isolating systems, they only offer partial protection, solely protecting systems against known attack vectors.
The good news is that smarter tactics are currently being explored by enterprises today, especially for industrial systems. To prepare, OEMs and manufacturers should examine ways they can mitigate risks for securing IoT. Here are seven things to keep in mind:
1. Pay attention to the cloud.
With the influx of connected devices emerging, more information is moving from traditional on-premises systems into the cloud. This is a top challenge for OEMs and IT providers as they try to navigate IoT security, as many conventional security technologies only support on-premises systems.
