Singapore government aims to set IoT security baseline
YBERSECURITY concerns around the internet of things (IoT) have plagued the minds of several business leaders for the past few months — especially as the technology becomes ripe for industrial adoption. However, given the potential of IoT in the smart cities ecosystem and the many ways it can integrate businesses with government agencies such as customs, excise, and indirect tax authorities among others, regulators too are concerned about security. As a result, in order to help businesses continue to develop the technology safely, Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) has issued a new consultation paper: “Consultation for IoT Cyber Security Guide“. Although still open for discussion, the baseline recommendations that the IMDA provides in the document are quite robust and might evolve into a set of benchmarks followed for IoT implementations and operations nationwide.
