Why IoT security needs to grow up quickly

Dale Drew

The IoT ecosystem is starting from scratch when it comes to cyber security. That creates a huge challenge for Internet Service Providers.

The bad guys trying to compromise Internet networks can do so starting with a single IoT device. And given the IoT industry doesn’t have the wealth of security experience to call upon that traditional devices do, it is particularly vulnerable to attack.

Combine this ease with the increasingly complex and powerful nature of DDoS attacks, and you have a large ecosystem of devices that could quite easily be turned against users to create a frighteningly powerful threat ecosystem.
