IoT Security Regulation Report: Why it’s time to regulate to accelerate

IoT security regulation is needed to underpin market acceleration

As volumes of IoT deployments scale-up, the question of security has never been more important, writes George Malim, the managing editor of IoT Now.

We've looked on in horror at the well-known breaches such as the Jeep hack by Wired magazine and the Las Vegas Casino aquarium water pump cyberattack but these have been in relatively confined, experimental environments and are not at the hyperscale of IoT. The scale in itself is a security issue and that is compounded because IoT is truly global and therefore is enacted under different regulations in different nations.
