Speech recognition systems make mistakes that could give cybercriminals access to a user’s home network. By activating a squatted skill, an unexpecting user could allow a malicious actor to extract information about their account, home network and even passwords before running the requested command.

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.
