IOT, NOT PEOPLE, NOW THE WEAKEST LINK IN SECURITY
Do a quick search on “people weakest link” and you’ll see a raft of articles in which cybersecurity experts and computer scientists point to employees or end users as the biggest vulnerability. No doubt, people do silly (or outright abusive) stuff and open the door for a variety of enterprise security problems. Spoiler alert: There’s this technology called the Internet of Things (IoT) and it’s a bigger security risk than people ever were. The new theme of this rapidly changing IoT security story is data integrity. Increased cybersecurity risk is due in part to the variety of environments IoT applications touch. Most at-scale IoT deployments use some form of a three-tier architecture, with edge, gateway and cloud components. Edge devices are those connected sensors and actuators touching the real world. They are usually small, low-power devices often running a wireless protocol such as Bluetooth, Thread, ZigBee, Z-Wave, sub-GHz, low power wide area (LPWA) networks, cellular IoT technology, Wi-Fi or other protocol.
