IoT Expansion Opens The Door to Vulnerabilities

The IoT expansion has been innovative, immersive, and impressive; revolutionizing modern day interactions and connectivity.

To meet this demand, companies are deploying products at rapid speed, while lowering prices to promote user adoption; leaving many in the security sector concerned about user data protection and proper product security hardening.

To address these concerns, The UK is taking a proactive approach, outlining a 13-point Code of Practice for manufactures, service providers, mobile application developers, and retailers to follow related to the IoT space – “Secure by Design: Improving the Cyber Security of Consumer Internet of Things Report”.

This concept may be new to the growing IoT space, but it is already the status quo for many products in Regulated Industries, as well as heavily mandated by Federal Governments around the globe. Their requirements for certifications like FIPS 140-2, Common Criteria, and the DoD’s APL address these concerns; ensuring products protect sensitive data and implement proper security architecture frameworks prior to deployment and network integration.
