5 Recommendations to Secure the Internet of Things-8

A reliance on passwords to prevent attackers from accessing systems, devices, and applications is outdated and ineffective. Attackers typically count on users implementing password-based security protocols, which opens the door to attacks — such as Trojan viruses, phishing, and man-in-the-middle — that take advantage of vulnerabilities. Attackers have evolved from simply wanting to achieve notoriety to becoming sophisticated thieves who steal personally identifiable information (PII) — such as financial and health care records and account numbers — to targeting the rapidly developing Internet of Things (IoT) market, where a hack becomes more personal and potentially life-threatening.

In this slideshow, Phil Montgomery, chief product officer at Identiv, will provide five recommendations to mitigate risk and maintain a strong security posture in this ever-growing connected world.
