The Role of Physical Security in IoT

March 14, 2019 / KOBUS MARNEWECK

Securing the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to become more important as the value of assets, and number of connected devices, continues to increase. The distributed and fragmented nature of IoT means a larger attack surface and physical access (proximity) to the devices. The combination of these two factors make physical security a viable and potent threat. There are many examples of how a lack of sufficient physical security can pose a severe security risk to the IoT ecosystem and the effects of a security breach can quickly snowball.
