How to address the growing security risk of IoT devices The current Internet of Things (IoT) space comes with numerous security vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities include weak authentication (IoT devices are being used with default credentials), unencrypted messages sent between devices, SQL injections and lack of verification or encryption of software updates. This allows attackers to easily intercept data to collect PII (Personally Identifiable Information), steal user credentials at login, or inject malware into newly updated firmware.
## The Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity and Privacy Risks The IoT ecosystem poses cybersecurity and privacy risks that extend beyond traditional data security. To address IoT-specific cybersecurity and privacy risks – including those posed by cyber, physical, and human elements. This article provides an overview of the IoT cybersecurity and privacy risks. How the introduction of IoT to networks and infrastructure has changed the cybersecurity and privacy risks organizations are facing, and how managing these cybersecurity and privacy risks has become increasingly difficult for IT security departments.
