Re: AT&T IoT Security
And I almost feel like nothing is being done about this! I don't get why people aren't more concerned. We don't want other countries having access to important documents..

Re: Increased INOT Vulnerability
And that's when things so wrong when we underestimate or ignore what's actually going on. We need to put an end to hackers especially from important documents getting into the wrong hands.

Re: AT&T IoT Security
Yes and it's scary! I think we need to really crack down on security because it is so easy for hackers to get in..

Re: AT&T IoT Security
@freehe - You make a great point! Hackers are the always ahead of security. This is why the Russians were able to hack into a ultility company in Vermont. While the code found that implicated Russian hackers was limited to one laptop, I imagine further access was not that far away. The concern is that they will use this ability to hack into and take down part of the electrical grid. If not taken seriously, I doubt it will take long to discover they are completely capabale of doing so.

Re: Increased INOT Vulnerability
@dcawrey - not sure what would get their attention. There's been talk this morning about Russians hacking an electric company in Vermont. The concern is their ability to try to knock out our power grid, similar to what they did in Ukraine. Yet many are quick to write the incident off as fake, or no big deal, because we can trust Russia now. Smh.

AT&T IoT Security
Organizations still do not fully understand the importance of implementing security measures and the investment.

New security attacks occur daily and will continue to occur because the hackers are always five steps or more ahead of companies in terms of finding security loopholes.

AT&T Security in 2017
IoT security will require a different skill set no matter how long you have been in the security field or how many security certifications you have because this is a new and evolving industry.

New types of attacks occur daily, therefore companies cannot already have the skill set to handle a new attack that has never occurred before.

"There are things that are not in your control that you have to worry about." This is a wake up call for companies regarding security.

Re: Security in 2017
AT&T's Porter stated "that the biggest threat in 2017 will be the scary use of IoT as an attack vector."

That is scary and is just a reminder that companies that say they already have the skill set for IoT don't understand how to secure IoT.

Re: Security in 2017
@dcawrey, I agree i don't recall any courses offered in security. I went to grad school and they were no security courses offered in my graduate program either. Sigh!
