actionable and useful guidance for securing the individual products that make up an IoT
system - to raise the overall security posture of IoT products.
We hope that this document is found especially useful by those organizations that have begun
transforming their existing products into IoT-enabled devices. That is, manufacturers that do
not have the background and experience to be aware of the myriad ways that bad guys may
try to misuse their newly connected equipment. These manufacturers are often told that there
are shortcomings in their security strategy, but have not yet had a good reference guide to help
them understand exactly what those shortcomings are and how to fix them.
We also hope that those in the startup communities will find this guide useful. Startups in the
connected product/system space are challenged with getting their products to market quickly.
Finding the right talent to help secure those products early in the development cycle is not
an easy task. This document provides a starting point for creating a security strategy that we
hope will help mitigate at least the most pressing threats to both consumer and business IoT
You’ve made safer cloud computing possible.
