OPEN PEER REVIEW: Security Guidance for Early Adopters of IoT

The Cloud Security Alliance would like to invite you to review and comment on the Security Guidance for Early Adopters of the Internet of Things (IoT). This guidance discusses some of the challenges associated with the adoption of the IoT and concludes with a set of recommendations that can be followed by early business adopters of the IoT to meet the following goals:

  • Maintain the confidentiality and integrity of both business and personal data collected within the IoT
  • Understand and address stakeholder privacy concerns prior to the implementation of the IoT
  • Safeguard the infrastructure from attacks that target the IoT as a vector into an organization’s assets
  • Initiate a global approach to combat security threats by sharing threat information with security vendors, industry peers and Cloud Security Alliance.

This is your opportunity to provide feedback and identify any critical areas in IoT the CSA working group can focus on current research. The open review and comments period ends on April 5, 2015. Submitting feedback is easy with our three-step process. Follow the below link to the peer review site:
