Vodadone IOT Security
I think they may have some solutions or steps for IOT Security like the management platform etc. There need to be lots of security when tou are dealing with networking devices and machines.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@clmoney I agree. No business can afford to skimp on security. It seems that the one who are more involved in IoT feel more confident about the connections being secured.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@clrmoney, it appears that everyone is gaining awareness as to the value - these results are encouraging.

It is also interesting to note that they do not see it as a stand-alone technology, but rather linking with analytics; probably viewing as an edge data-computing source.

Progress may be in the offering?

4 Elements
<Security is built into all elements of our IoT solutions, from the ground up. If you look at the four main components of an IoT project -- access to the network, the network, the management platform, and storage of the IoT data>

Obviously, these are all very important, but I would suggest that "storage of IoT data" may be the dark horse - important element here because of all the ways the data could be used not only by the initial hacker but anyone they could sell it to.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@Ariella - It seems Equifax did and I'm sure they'll survive. Of course they aren't a telco company, but still they are a business. And were apparently warned about the weakness in their security by Homeland Security early in the year. They did nothing. And more than doing nothing, when they discovered the breach, the CEO's of the company sold a bunch of their stock long before they ever told the public what had happened. And since apparently we aren't seen as their customers, banks are, and none of them seem willing to leave at the moment, I doubt they'll have much trouble at all recovering from this.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@elizabethv you hit on a key point there. We're not the customers they serve. Their bread is buttered on another side, and that's likely a major reason why such things are allowed to happen. Yes, some heads do roll at these companies after such incidents, but typically just the ones of the people they decided were expendable as public scapegoats.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
Happy Wednesday to all!! :)

Just saw this from IC3 On the very issue we're deliberating, FYI:

U.S. Department of Homeland Security US-CERT

National Cyber Awareness System:

 
10/17/2017 06:56 PM EDT

Original release date: October 17, 2017

In conjunction with National Cyber Security Awareness Month, the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has issued an alert to individuals and businesses about the security risks involved with the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT refers to the emerging network of devices (e.g., smart TVs, home automation systems) that connect to one another via the Internet, often automatically sending and receiving data. IC3 warns that once a device is compromised, an attacker may take control of an affected system, obtain sensitive information, or cause a denial-of-service condition.

US-CERT encourages individuals and businesses to review the IC3 Alert for more information on IoT vulnerabilities and mitigation techniques.

@mpouraryan I don't know how many people observe the month. It's been in existnece since 2004.  Why they chose October, I don't know, perhaps to get in ahead of peak holiday time.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@mpouraryan - This makes me wonder about the security in my sons Owlet. It's a tiny smart sock that monitors his heart rate and PulseOx, and then alerts my husband and I if either dips too low. (It's for babies.) But it connects to WiFi and we can check the numbers on our phones. I wonder if it could potentially be an even easier access point than the camera's I had mentioned previously.

Man, IoT has already become so much a part of our lives that little (in size, not importance) gadgets like this Owlet can easily be overlooked as an access point.
