The IoT Security Foundation was established to respond to the myriad of challenges and concerns over security in the Internet of Things. It is a collaborative, vendor-neutral, international initiative aspiring to be the expert resource for sharing knowledge, best practice and advice.
According to the IOTSF, the number of connected devices will be measured in billions, and the economic impact of the Internet of Things will be measured in trillions of dollars. It is clear that the IoT opportunity is huge, but the reality is that the proliferation of connected devices that make up the IoT ecosystem introduces risk directly into the physical world. The lines between virtual threats and actual threats to real world devices, utilities and critical infrastructure are blurred.
It is clear that IoT security should be a top concern for organizations as it is more than just the company's reputation at stake, should their product be compromised and cause security issues down the line. The IP of their product is potentially at risk also, so software should be encrypted to ensure it is protected from intrusion, and later counterfeiting. It is imperative that silicon vendors, technology manufacturers, service providers and users work together to ensure security is fit-for-purpose, and this is in the key mission statement of the IOTSF.
