Security in IoT devices relies on sustained, pervasive attention to detail across the entire threat surface
February 12, 2019 / IOT NOW MAGAZINE
Cyber-threats are growing every day and what traditionally was seen as a data protection issue in the IT domain is becoming an increasing reality in the machine-to-machine (M2M) domain. Compounding this rise in capability is the rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), writes Robin Duke-Woolley, the chief executive of Beecham Research. In this fast moving market we are becoming increasingly connected, whether through cellular, Wi-Fi, bespoke wireless or other connections. This interconnection inherently creates a massive expansion in the attack surface available to hackers. Couple this with new devices being rapidly developed and deployed to market, with all of the inherent code issues and bugs in new products and there is a golden opportunity for attackers.
