IoT security is a tough challenge — involving everything from hard to implement standards; hard to reach industrial components; and choices on how to integrate security around both older “brownfield” and newer IoT systems and equipment.
Laurence Pitt's picture
Organizations are now running IoT application workloads in diverse locations that create complex ecosystems for IT and security personnel to oversee.
John Maddison's picture
Organizations can no longer afford to treat IoT devices as an isolated or independent component of their business, and must implement an effective IoT security strategy.
Laurence Pitt's picture
Advanced smart infrastructure, cloud networks and the Internet of Things (IoT) add more points of entry and ultimately more risk for both network operators and end users.
John Maddison's picture
Since access control technologies are usually the first network element that a new device touches, they need to be able to automatically recognize IoT devices.

Whether you work with in-house security resources or outside consultants, security experts are essential to help uncover vulnerabilities and offer recommendations to prioritize and mitigate risks.
Laurence Pitt's picture
Safeguarding emerging IoT ecosystems involves embedding visibility and protection into the fabric of the IoT network.
Torsten George's picture
Unfortunately, the Cyber Shield Act as it stands falls short, since it is a voluntary program that does not incentivize vendors to implement the NIST security standards.
Scott Simkin's picture
Just as there should be consistency across network, endpoint and cloud security, there should be the same consistency in identification, prevention, policy and enforcement of that policy for IoT security.
