FAQ
Why is IoT device security so important?

IoT devices security is important since these devices are typically interconnected, transmit sensitive data, and control critical functions. A single data breach or a cyber attack can lead to reputational and financial damage and disruption of processes.

What are the main threats and risks associated with IoT security?

The main Internet of Things security issues include weak authentication, legacy assets, device diversity, outdated software and firmware, privacy concerns, and other threats that may lead to data leakage and IoT system shutdown.

What standards and legislation govern IoT security?

ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27002, and ISO/IEC 27005 are the core standards that regulate IoT security requirements. Additional laws include the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that oversees proper data protection in the European Union.

Which industries are most exposed to IoT security risks?

Generally, industries heavily reliant on IoT are most exposed to security risks. Those include industrial IoT (IIoT), healthcare, manufacturing, and critical infrastructure.

What trends and innovations exist in IoT device security?

Using blockchain tech for secure data transfer and AI and ML for threat detection are the most prominent innovations in IoT security. Reliance on zero-trust architectures is a security trend as well.
