NSA Views IoT Cyber Bill As Key Security Booster
April 19, 2019 / NSA
With the increasing ubiquity of internet of things (IoT) devices and the vast expansion of the cyber attack surface that those devices create, National Security Agency (NSA) IoT Enterprise Functional Team Lead Arlene Santos is emphasizing the importance of the IoT Cybersecurity Improvement Act reintroduced in Congress last month as way to address the cybersecurity concerns posed by rapid IoT device growth. The bill, sponsored by Sens. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Cory Gardner, R-Colo., aims to create and strengthen cybersecurity requirements for IoT devices purchased, used, and controlled by the Federal government.
