New Security Guidance for Early Adopters of the IoT

Release Date: 04/20/2015

Working Group: Internet of Things

For the latest research on IoT security from CSA, please check out the IoT Working Group and their IoT Security Controls Framework.

The marketplace is seeing the beginning of widespread adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) within the consumer sector. Wearables, smart home appliances, lighting, and other IoT devices are becoming mainstream. This surge of smart consumer devices is anticipated to continue to grow at a frenzied pace well into the future. 

As traditional enterprise security solutions do not sufficiently address the security needs of IoT, this document provides guidance for the secure implementation of IoT-based systems. This document was created using input from a number of security and mobility experts representing diverse industries. References and information from existing guidance in the field are incorporated into this paper whenever possible in order to promote alignment with the work of other industry bodies.

Key Takeaways:
  • Challenges posed by IoT, including: increased privacy concerns, platform security limitations, and ubiquitous mobility that hinders tracking and asset management
  • Examples of IoT threats and attack vectors to both individuals and organizations
  • Top challenges for organizations trying to secure IoT systems
Who It’s For: Anyone involved in the implementation of IoT-based systems
