Privacy Risk Risk & Security Security

The Internet Of Things is becoming the Internet Of Threats

Security by design is a methodical process, not an ad hoc undertaking. Failure to adopt this mindset for every single IoT device will likely lead to the need to make quick fixes to address bugs or newly discovered security threats.
The automobile manufacturers who showed off their newest models at the New York Auto Show are representative of the opportunities and challenges before all internet of things (IoT) hardware manufacturers.

Automakers are implementing an incredible range of smart connected technologies to create an amazing user experience, but they also need to focus on user security. That mindset should be the guiding principle for all IoT device manufacturers, no matter their size or business/consumer application.

“Products can be secure only if they are designed with security in mind.”A recent McKinsey & Company report on cybersecurity and connected cars states, “Products can be secure only if they are designed with security in mind.” As cars become more complex, they require more electronic control units and lines of code. Connectivity enables self-driving or driver-assist capabilities and improved safety features.

But connectivity also increases the risk, as these complex safety and navigation systems are more vulnerable to hacking.
