IoT - Threats and Security Measures
ENISA, the European Union Cybersecurity agency, published a report on the security of the Internet of Things (IoT). This aims to serve as a reference point in the field and the basis for relevant schemes in the future.
Executive Director of ENISA, Prof. Dr. Udo Helmbrecht, said, “The deployment of IoT will be the key to our smart cities, smart airports, smart health and smart X. It is envisaged that IoT will be deployed everywhere and will have a positive impact on our lives. The deployment of baseline security recommendations into our IoT ecosystem will be critical to the proper function of these devices by mitigating and preventing cyber-attacks.” IoT ushers the smart element into the everyday life of Europeans, so the threats due to these devices are also growing.
With the severe threat in the IoT landscape, it is essential to understand what needs to be secured. In the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) which are either critical infrastructures or essential in their operation, it becomes more important. The recommendations of the ENISA report are meant to be used by everyone involved, from the European Commission and government to the IoT industry and everyone associated with it.
With the IoT infiltration in all facets of life, it becomes important to have a strong holistic approach to IoT. It is essential to raise awareness for the need of IoT security and foster administrative and economic incentives for the same. IoT security initiatives should be harmonized and safe lifecycle guidelines for software and hardware development should be identified. For interoperability across the IoT ecosystem, consensus should be achieved, and liability among stakeholders has to be clarified.
