Working Group: Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming consumer, business, and industrial practices by creating a world that is perpetually connected to the internet. Thus, IoT has become a significant domain of cloud security. Organizations that manufacture IoT products should endeavor to protect themselves and their customers from all threats that could arise in the future since, we’ve come to find, an IoT system is only as secure as its weakest link.

This document by the IoT Working Group provides actionable and useful guidance for securing the individual products that make up an IoT system. In it, you will find a comprehensive guide to securing IoT devices, including 13 steps to integrate into your development process, and an outline of the top IoT security considerations.

Key Takeaways:
  • What the main security issues and challenges are for IoT
  • Why you should care about IoT security
  • How to provide a business case for IoT security
  • Which security options you should use for IoT development platforms
  • How to enact secure device design and development processes, including a detailed checklist for security engineers to follow
  • Which threats impact specific IoT products
Who It’s For: This document is for any manufacturer of IoT products. Organizations that have begun transforming their existing products into IoT-enabled devices will find it particularly useful. In addition, IoT startups can use this document as a starting point for creating their security strategy.
