Security considerations for Internet of Things

Security is one of the foremost concerns raised by different stakeholders in Internet of Things which has the potential to slow down its adoption. While security has always been a concern since the computers started connecting to each other, the impact was limited to stealing money and intellectual property. But Internet of things adds a completely new dimension to this where the devices performing critical tasks, if insecure, can be manipulated to the devastating effects. The impact could be on public safety, environment, productivity and many others.

How IoT Is Transforming The Future of Healthcare

whitePaper | June 3, 2019

According to a report released by National Institutes of Health in 2016, the world’s older population is growing dramatically. 8.5% of people worldwide (617 million) are aged 65 and over and this is projected to jump to nearly 17% of the world’s population by 2050 (1.6 billion). To add on, global life expectancy at birth is projected to increase by almost eight years, climbing from 68.6 years in 2015 to 76.2 years in 20501. Together with the rise of chronic illness, this will, if it hasn’t already, increase the demand in healthcare and push the current systems beyond its limit and capabilities. Hospital staffs will be asked to do much more than what they can handle. To make matters worse, societies have rising expectations for more and better health services. Hospitals and healthcare facilities will face difficult times balancing expectations against available resources.

The 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership: the next generation of communication networks and services

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

5G will provide disruptive capabilities as described below, which will be an economy booster by fostering new ways to organize the business sector of service providers, as well as fostering new business models supported by advanced ICT. In addition, 5G should pave the way for a larger number of partnerships and Business to Business to Customers (B2B2C) business models through APIs deployed at different levels (assets, connectivity, enablers). The 5G architecture and technology will allow using only the necessary network functions and resources for each specific service (e.g. some M2M devices may not need mobility), as well as sharing infrastructure and spectrum costs in a flexible way between a rich ecosystem of service providers.

Make things come alive in a secure way

whitePaper |

Trustworthiness, which encompasses security, privacy, reliability and reliance, is a key challenge for the IoT. Firstly, this is because the IoT is intimately linked to business-critical processes, and secondly because the IoT significantly broadens the surface of attack of business intelligence systems. Sigfox addresses this challenge through a systematic process that assumes that security is relative and will be adapted to the level of threat faced by the application at hand.
