The Industrial Internet Of Things Is About To Become A Multi-Trillion Dollar Market - ARC - ARC

IoT security issues and vulnerabilities. In part three of this four-part cyber security webcast with, infosec strategist and CISO Demetrios Lazarikos talks about IoT security issues and the fear surrounding IoT vulnerabilities.

IoT security issues and vulnerabilities

There is a lot of fear, uncertainty and doubt generated from IoT security issues, Lazarikos said. "Some organizations have been embracing this technology, saying, 'What can I do next from a business standpoint? ' But there are controls that have been either bypassed, or for whatever reasons, missed during the product release cycle. " A look at recent news stories can reveal just how far hackers are able to go if they manage to exploit IoT security issues, Lazarikos said. One IoT exploit example includes a smart refrigerator hack. Zero Day Attack Definition. DEFINITION of 'Zero Day Attack' Zero Day is an attack that exploits a potentially serious software security weakness (zero day attack or zero day exploit) that the vendor or developer may be unaware of (zero day vulnerability).

Zero Day Attack Definition

The software developer must rush to resolve the weakness as soon as it is discovered in order to limit the threat to software users. The solution is called a software patch. Zero-day attacks can also be used to attack the internet of things (IoT) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA). A zero-day attack gets its name from the number of days the software developer has known about the problem. A 'common security model' against typical hazards in the IoT - IoT Now - How to run an IoT enabled business. Report: IoT security products face huge challenges - CyberScoop. Network security, device authentication and encryption are the most currently successful strategies for securing Internet of Things systems, with identity management and emerging tech — including security analytics and blockchain — likely to join them over the next one to five years, according to new research from Forrester.

The report, “TechRadar: Internet of things security, Q1 2017,” defines “the use cases, business value, and outlook for the 13 most relevant and important technologies for delivering IoT security,” it states. Encryption “is an essential IoT security best practice,” states the report, because of the high stakes implicit in the use of IoT technologies. 10 Internet of Things companies to watch. It’s good to be an Internet of Things startup these days.

10 Internet of Things companies to watch

Cisco forked over $1.4B for IoT platform provider Jasper in February. Nokia Growth Partners has raised a $350 million IoT-focused investment fund. And IoT startups are pulling in tens of millions in venture funding. Verizon, in its new “State of the Market: Internet of Things 2016” report, states that its venture arm estimates that while consumer-oriented IoT firms pulled in 15% more funding than enterprise-focused ones in 2014, it is enterprise IoT startups that are now raking in the big bucks. Verizon Ventures says enterprise IoT startups attracted 75% more funding than consumer IoT upstarts last year and that enterprise IoT startups are expected to grab 2 to 3 times as much funding as their consumer counterparts this year. (For more from Verizon Ventures’ Ruth, check out my interview with him here.)

How the Internet of Things Is Changing Cybersecurity. “We’re at an inflection point in technology history,” said Earl Perkins, research vice president at Gartner, in his session titled How the Internet of Things Will Change Digital Security Forever at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, Maryland.

How the Internet of Things Is Changing Cybersecurity

The Internet of Things (IoT) now penetrates to the edge of the physical world and brings an important new “physical” element to security concerns. This is especially true as billions of things begin transporting data “somewhere.” Nowhere To Hide. Peerlyst. IEEE SA - P2413 - Standard for an Architectural Framework for the Internet of Things (IoT) OWASP Internet of Things Project. I Am The Cavalry A global grassroots organization that is focused on issues where computer security intersects public safety and human life.
