1Internet of Thing Security Policies Still Lagging, Report Finds
Internet of things (IoT) security has been a growing concern in recent years, with vulnerabilities continuing to be reported and hackers continuing to launch attacks. IoT security vendor Pwnie Express released its 2018 Internet of Evil Things report on May 16, providing insight from a total of 708 cyber-security professionals around the world. Among the high-level findings in the report is that 85 percent of respondents hold the view that a major attack on critical infrastructure is likely within the next four years. While organizations are aware of IoT risks, the study found that only 23 percent of organizations actually monitor their networks for IoT device threats and barely one-quarter have an IoT security policy. In this slide show, eWEEK looks at some of the highlights of the 2018 Internet of Evil Things report.
