Market Scenario

With the increasing use of smart IoT devices, challenges related to security are increasing. As fast as security grows, the hacking world grows faster. IoT security is the process of protecting IoT-connected devices including hardware, software, and data from cyber-attack. The security that is designed to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data, is a subset of cybersecurity. IoT security focuses on protecting internet-enabled devices that connect to each other on wireless networks. IoT security is the safety component tied to the IoT to protect IoT devices and networks against cybercrime.

Companies should enhance consumer privacy and security, thereby building consumer trust in IoT devices:

  • Adopt security by design: Every IoT design should start with security. Giant tech firms and startups, alike, should incorporate security into the initial design process.

  • Engage in data minimization: To avoid security breaches, IoT manufacturers should employ different approaches to protect the device from being accessed by anyone through the Internet.

  • Increase transparency and provide consumers with notice and choice for unexpected data uses: IoT manufacturers should provide consumers with a notice about how data is used and shared and then offer tools that will allow consumers to turn off certain types of information collection and sharing. The manufacturers should also educate consumers about security so users can avoid risky behavior while using IoT devices.

IoT is becoming mainstream, with companies like Google, Cisco, IBM, Intel, and others leading the revolution. The IoT explosion will offer a wide range of opportunities to various sectors, including manufacturing and healthcare, it also poses major risks in terms of security. As more devices are interconnected, securing them all will be the biggest challenge. Hardware, software, and connectivity will all need to be secure for IoT objects to work effectively. Without security, any connected object, from refrigerators to manufacturing bots, can be hacked. Once hackers gain control, they can usurp the object's functionality and steal digital data.
