From industrial machinery to self-driving automobiles to toasters, the next decade promises the democratization of connectivity to every electrical device. But along with the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) comes the all-important question of security.
An IoT-enabled device as seemingly benign as a teddy bear can be compromised and used to spy, deceive, or worse. Think of an enterprise setup whether a manufacturing facility, a retailer or a hospital and the issues around privacy, regulatory compliance and data security multiple exponentially.
But IoT security done well means you don’t have to let these attacks deter you from building your own IoT solution. Below I’ve called out three key areas where security must be tough. For greater depth, I recommend that you register for the IoT in Action in San Francisco on February 13.
