The world needs start-ups to meet IoT security challenges

I read this article earlier this week from Jeff Vance and I was buoyed by the refreshing reflection of reality – Jeff really hits the nail on the head. As the CEO of a cyber security start up, we see, hear, and feel these points daily and the fact is that so many larger security or network businesses claim to solve problems that they cannot. Not only is this doing a disservice to customers but to the wider security landscape. Let’s explore this further…


Defensics extends fuzzing capabilities for IoT markets

Internet of Things (IoT) devices are becoming ubiquitous, with billions deployed in the world. And threat actors are constantly looking for vulnerabilities in them because, unlike traditional IT devices, once IoT devices with fixed firmware are deployed, it is often impossible to fix problems. That’s why it is critical to thoroughly test the security and resilience of IoT devices before deployment, using the same methods that hackers use.


Why IoT Raises Concerns About Identity Theft

The internet of things (IoT) — the collective name for internet-connected devices and sensors — represents a new era in technology. This hardware leverages advancements in connectivity, hardware, miniaturization, cloud computing, data processing, integration, and more to offer benefits to consumers and businesses alike.

R4IoT: When Ransomware Meets IoT and OT | Forescout Research

Forescout Research - Vedere Labs has released a demonstration, report and detailed playbook describing how organizations can protect themselves against R4IoT: a novel, proof-of-concept ransomware that exploits an IoT device to gain access and move laterally in an IT network and impact the OT network. This demonstration is backed by rigorous research into IT, OT and IoT asset vulnerabilities as well as current ransomware trends.

4 Advantages of Cloud Migration for Industrial IoT

Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) is revolutionizing the world of manufacturing. By connecting machines, plants, assets, and production lines to the cloud, businesses can gain access to critical data in real time, enabling them to make more informed decisions and stay ahead of the competition. However, this already stressful process requires a significant investment in IT infrastructure and resources—unless you opt for cloud migration.


What Is IoT Security?

Internet of Things (IoT) security protects IoT devices and the networks to which they connect from cyberattacks. IoT devices can include anything that connects to your internet including doorbell cameras, baby monitors, smart bulbs and thermostats. This presents a cybersecurity risk because anything that can connect to your internet is at risk of being hacked.


Ensure IoT Identity Security at Scale with the Excellence of PKI

The modern digital space is undergoing a seismic transformation characterized by an unprecedented surge in IoT device adoption across industries. As businesses embrace digitization on an ever-expanding scale, deploying IoT devices has transcended mere convenience, becoming an integral part of the operational fabric. With a proliferation that has outpaced human population growth, the world is witnessing a new era laden with both possibilities and challenges.


The future of IoT security

IoT security begins with building secure software. Learn how to embed security into your SDLC to avoid becoming an easy target for hackers. With the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT), there are billions of devices in the world today. Everything is becoming a computer—your thermostat, stove, refrigerator, washer, dryer, vehicle, door locks—even things like lawn mowers and vacuum cleaners.


Biden's IoT Cybersecurity initiative

The Biden Administration has recently announced the implementation of a cybersecurity labeling program for smart devices. Overseen by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), this new program seeks to address the security of Internet of Things (IoT) devices nationwide. This announcement is in response to an increasing number of smart devices that fall victim to hackers and malware (AP News).
