Less than half of businesses can detect IoT data breach

January 16, 2019 / Clare Hopping

Only 48% of businesses have the infrastructure set up to detect whether their IoT infrastructure is open to a data breach, a report by security firm Gemalto has revealed.Firms are now asking for the government to intervene and set better regulations around IoT security to prevent potentially damaging hacks into such devices.In fact, 79% of the 950 decision makers the company spoke to said they think the government should play a more involved part in combating IoT-related cybercrime, whether this is creating a framework for firms to adhere to or making it clearer who is responsible for protecting IoT.“Given the increase in the number of IoT-enabled devices, it’s extremely worrying to see that businesses still can’t detect if they have been breached,” said Jason Hart, CTO of data protection at Gemalto.
