3 ways we can boost IoT security
It’s a vast opportunity but it also brings vast risk. How do you keep billions of devices secure? How about the networks they run on? How do you make sure the data you get from all those devices isn’t compromised? There is no one-size-fits-all solution, but let’s look at three pillars of the new and comprehensive security approach necessary to make the IoT safe for business: Your smartphone is a trusted connected device. For example, it is generally the only device allowed easily on corporate networks, and 90 percent of Swedes between the age of 20-40 use a mobile-phone-based digital national identity system launched just seven years ago. The GSMA has also launched Mobile Connect, a global standard in digital authentication connected to a user’s mobile phone. We need to move this level of security into the IoT. But connecting IoT devices is different from connecting people and their smartphones. First, the IoT encompasses a huge range of devices An IoT device can’t enter a password to gain access, for instance. And while the systems that run our computers and phones are regularly updated, many IoT devices have extremely limited capabilities, cannot have any downtime and will go years between updates.
