Why security in the Internet of Things is different from cybersecurity
The Internet of Things (IoT) is clearly so much more than just the ‘things’. It has become a huge collaborative effort to bring all the pieces together to deliver real value with a chain that stretches from humans to machines to the cloud.
A secure IoT must be decentralized, distributed, encrypted, updated, patched and designed for interoperability. It must communicate securely over non-secure networks, and it must be secure from user app to multiple "things" including clouds and communication hubs. And it must include even the tiniest sensor device without processing power enough for strong encryption.
To sum up, we need new thinking to adress the complexities and increased risks with IoT.
