The GSMA forecasts that IoT revenue will surge to more than $1.1 trillion by 2025. Still, many organisations are unsure of how to successfully execute their IoT implementation securely. There are some unique challenges where it comes to IoT Security - IoT devices have limited CPU, memory and storage, unsecure devices are out in the field with a long lifespan (10-15 years) and when you employ a cellular network, you can lose direct visibility. So, when looking at threat modelling as a way to determine security risks to the application, a lot of companies use S.T.R.I.D.E. – providing a checklist of identifying those threats and suggesting mitigations.
This is not optional. Failure to account for project complexity, network security, and endpoint lifecycle management means many companies will end up one of the 66% of organisations who feel IoT solution execution is more difficult than they originally expected. The benefits of implementing an IoT solution, however, far outweigh the challenges you may face along the way.
Join us on a webinar with George Malim (editor – IoT Now), Chris Francosky (SVP, IT & Security – KORE), and James Moar (Lead Analyst – Juniper Research) where we provide strategies for incorporating security by design at the outset of a project, deliver insights for architecting a security framework that safeguards all layers of the IoT stack, and discuss solutions that help monitor for suspicious behaviour.
