According to the F-Secure Cyber security report, global cyberattacks on IoT devices surged by 300% in 2019. And while cyber security has long been associated with big corporations, a recent Verizon data breach report paints a different picture: IoT Security is becoming essential for everyone; and that is where IoT Security Assured comes in.

What are the main IoT Security Issues?

 

In 2016, a hacker exploited a vulnerability in one of the well-known security camera models to launch massive attacks on social media platforms. This attack is just one example of how IoT devices can be exploited. The following are further examples of these issues.

 

What are the IoT Security Solutions

 

Cyber security for large businesses is defined by its evolving nature. Both the defenders and attackers are constantly innovating ways to be successful. In a quest to deal with existing and emerging threats, large businesses often face the following primary challenges:

Adherence to cyber security best practices

Manufacturers need to adhere to IoT best practices and standards. These include, penetration testing activities where they do regular attack simulations against their IoT devices to root out possible vulnerabilities. Manufacturers should also develop regular updates and automatically push those updates to their IoT devices.

Building user awareness

Users are part of an attack vector that is usually targeted by malevolent actors seeking to breach the IoT networks. Manufacturers and other stakeholders need to build awareness on efficient ways of using IoT devices.
