Where safety needs security

IoT Threat Assessment form From healthcare to industrial to energy, the future is connected. Many industries are looking to IoT technologies to improve their relationship with customers and to introduce new services. For most, safety and data privacy is also critical to these services, so they must have security solutions in place to meet consumers’ safety expectations.

IoT connectivity opens cybersecurity risks

As more and more devices become connected, many industries that were previously secure are experiencing new threats or attacks to their services. With the increased connectivity of devices and ecosystems, these new IoT services are also exposed to greater security risk.

To address this, there are many security solutions for malware and endpoint authentication readily available on the market. However, the protection of the legitimate device software and applications remain a security weakness in most IoT ecosystems. As companies take advantage of IoT connectivity, they must be aware of the full cybersecurity risk in front of them.
