Securing the Internet of Things: Defense-in-Depth

Session Abstract:

IoT Slam Virtual Internet of Things Conference -Aeris LogoThe Internet of Things creates the possibility for the next economic revolution, but also offers an environment rife with security holes. In order to sustain and reap the benefits of IoT, security must be part of design DNA and not an afterthought. This discussion will take a 360 degree approach to learning how to protect your IoT networks and devices from threats, including:

  • Prevent: Implement best practices with authentication, authorization, access Control, site-to-site VPN and a dedicated IP address and APN for enterprise traffic isolation
  • Shield: Go beyond best practices by disabling Internet traffic and direct thing-to-thing communication, SMS only via secure APIs, and restrict network access to/from the enterprise via authorized sites/servers
  • Detect: Monitor “things” usage to benchmark normal access, and to detect unauthorized access based on sources
  • Respond: Contain a breach by quarantining the affected devices and fix via remote device management
