Beat the Myth that IoT is Insecure, Open to Hackers and Privacy Breaches

Jan 29, 2022

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.
