Surviving the IoT Cyberattack Pandemic
Assess your risks, secure your firmware and comply with the ever-changing regulatory landscape.
The Federal Communications Commission
The most important questions for IoT device manufacturers and vendors include:
Endure and Thrive in the IoT Security Tsunami
Manufacturers are well-advised to understand and follow the FTC's guidelines. An experienced cybersecurity consultant can work with you to effectively implement these best practices in your company.
IoT suppliers should also remain aware and informed of the ever-changing IoT regulatory landscape. A good cybersecurity attorney can assist you with risk assessment and management, as well as ensuring compliance with the latest rules and policies.
IoT providers are strongly urged to participate in the current FCC comment proceeding. In addition to helping shape the rules, it is important to ensure that regulatory responsibility is fairly distributed. A lot of stakeholders with competing interests will be submitting comments, and they will naturally seek to ensure that compliance responsibility is shifted to others. Moreover, submitting comments will help you get your company's name recognized as an important player in the IoT industry
The IoT security tsunami is real. IoT providers must understand the specific risks to their companies and work diligently to mitigate them. IoT companies that ignore the cybersecurity threats do so at their extreme peril.
