A Framework for Securing the Internet of Things
This IDC Perspective looks at the current situation surrounding Internet of Things (IoT) security and lays out a taxonomy framework for IoT and associated security solutions. As the Internet of Things begins to deliver value, the adoption and proliferation of IoT capabilities also bring new risks. Security is paramount to many organizations as they realize how usage scenarios may be affected by compromises to the control and availability of devices and to the integrity of systems.
"As IoT projects proliferate, securing each component in the system from cyberattacks has become a growing challenge. New projects have the benefit of employing products that are secure by design. However, existing implementations may require industry-specific security tools to lock out potential attackers." — Ed Lee, research director, IoT and Intelligent Edge Security, IDC
