IoT Security: It’s All About the Process – eSecurity Planet
With IoT security, complicated dependencies demand complementary processes.

IoT security is very much the story about the weekest link of the chain, and IoT applications will have many links in them. Knowing what and how to do is paramount, but processes might seem to increase the cost and development time.
True, but necessary costs. Fixing things in later product releases or having a never ending stream of security patches will not help sell your products, but actually being the cause of a breach might kill you through liability.
Don’t cut corners in your development. It will only hurt you in the long run. Save on features and code instead. Use verified and certified 3rd party components, tools, etc, as long as they have built for security from the start. Inhouse development isn’t always better.
