IoT Security is in the news once again, after the events of the past month, during which the Mirai Trojan caused a major DDoS (Direct Denial of Service) attack that took down multiple sites across the USA.
To prevent or contain issues such as this, it is crucial to look at the full picture when implementing an IoT network solution.
This begins with ensuring router access is secure. It would also be beneficial to keep devices separate from each other wherever possible, by setting up multiple network SSIDs.
It is also important to implement secure firmware updates, and of course, strong passwords are always key – avoid default passwords wherever possible.
