NIST report offers advice on IoT security

July 08, 2019 / Stuart Corner

The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released a report outlining the risks posed by IoT devices and how to mitigate them.The document, Considerations for Managing Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity and Privacy Risks (NISTIR 8228), is the first in a planned series NIST is developing to help IoT users protect themselves, their data and their networks from potential compromise.NIST says it is aimed primarily at federal agencies and other big organisations that are incorporating IoT devices into their workplace. However it is useful to any organisation deploying or planning to deploy IoT, and the report itself says IoT device manufacturers and integrators could find it useful for understanding concerns regarding managing cybersecurity and privacy risks for IoT devices.
