Beat the Myth that IoT is Insecure, Open to Hackers and Privacy Breaches
The IOT is now much more secure than in its earlier days. New security measures include:
- Technology designed to enhance privacy, including virtual private networks and DNS security extensions. These can be modified to protect data as it travels through the cloud.
- PKI encryption is designed to secure private messages travelling between two devices.
- API security to protect data that travels from IoT devices to back-end systems.
- The development and introduction of additional security frameworks.
Underpinning this improved security is legislation that can help combat any wrongdoing and act as a disincentive to criminals. There are a variety of different government regulations that require sensitive personal information to be protected.
