Protecting Wirelessly Connected IoT Devices from Cyber Attacks

by Alan Grau, President – Icon Labs Wireless connectivity is a critical component for many new IoT devices.  The advantages are obvious, but what is perhaps not as obvious is the cyber threats that these devices are exposed to over these wireless networks. Reported hacks against IoT devices include things as diverse as remotely flushing IoT connected toilets, […]
