Internet of Things

The evolution of smart homes and smart buildings into complex IoT environments reflects the continuing developments in home and industrial automation. Security should not be left behind as increased complexity also means new threats and risks.
Radio frequency (RF) technology is being used in operations to control various industrial machines. However, the lack of implemented security in RF communication protocols could lead to production sabotage, system control, and unauthorized access.
Security plays a crucial role in creating and operating smart factories. By identifying the building blocks of IIoT security, organizations can plan and implement strong security measures for smart factory systems.
We looked into MQTT brokers and CoAP servers around the world to assess IoT protocol security. Learn how to prevent risks and secure machine-to-machine (M2M) communications over MQTT and CoAP in our research.
This research looks at the kinds of IoT projects being driven by global organizations, their key challenges and perceived threats, along with hard data outlining the frequency and type of attacks they’ve already experienced.
As the field of telecommunication continues to evolve, so should its security. Understanding its current threat landscape can help reduce the impact of crimes like telecom fraud and prepare us for future threats in the age of the IoT.
A critical factor contributing to the increasing expenses on mobile phones is fraud. Recently, the cost of criminal telecom equipment has decreased to the point that individuals can launch attacks. Read our report produced in collaboration with Europol.
Blockchain is one of the key concepts in IoT conversations today, touted to accelerate the scaling of IoT implementations. However, due to its nascent nature, what could be the potential risks, and how can blockchain play a role in IoT security?
Beijing’s traffic authority gives tech company Baidu a go-ahead for testing self-driving cars on its public roads. What does this mean for self-driving cars and technologies?
The results of a security preparedness survey reveal that more than half of organizations aren't ready to defend against online extortion and data breaches.
A pivotal change to adapt to technological advances like smart factories requires a huge budget, and one critical consideration is how to get the most value out of that investment. Integrators can begin by reevaluating their security.
With plenty of voice-based internet-of-things devices in use around the world, it is expected that they will become riddled with compatibility issues and privacy concerns. What threats are there and what can be done to mitigate them?
