What Is IoT Security? Insights & Tips from 11 IoT Experts

Smart devices and other connected internet of things (IoT) technologies can be found in homes and workplaces globally. But just how secure are the technologies that we entrust our work environments & sensitive data to? 11 experts weigh in as we take an in-depth look at internet of things security for businesses 

The more technologically “connected” our personal lives and businesses become, the more IoT security matters. Data from Fortune Business Insights shows that the IoT market is projected to top 1.4 trillion devices by 2027 with nearly a 25% compound annual growth rate (CAGR)!

Now, we’re not going to inundate you with all of the IoT security statistics we’ve seen — you can read more of those on your own in our IoT statistics article. But the point here is that IoT devices are here to stay, and it’s up to companies to decide how they’ll be used — whether they’re useful and secure assets or vulnerable targets for attackers.

The so-called internet of things (IoT) includes many devices found in homes and businesses across all industries. It includes network-connected devices as well as those that use other connectivity protocols (such as RFID and Bluetooth). But what does this growing reliance on connected technologies mean for businesses in terms of IoT security? We’ve asked 11 security executives, developers, and other IT experts to help us answer that and other IoT and security-related questions.

In this article, we’ll answer the question “what is IoT security?” and explore what internet of things security entails, why it’s historically been an issue to achieve, and what companies and governments are doing to address IoT security issues.

Let’s hash it out.
