The Building Blocks of IoT and the DNA of IoT Security

4 minute read

The idea of the Decade of IoT centers around the next generation of IoT adoption that will occur through 2030. This transformative era is expected to be driven by a few key factors, including emerging technologies in IoT and IoT connectivity, the rise of IoT enablement services, and the market demand for technology driven solutions.

IoT has the potential to revolutionize the ways businesses operate by pushing the next generation of digitization. For example, while industrial and manufacturing firms have the ability to collect and analyze data through Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems, the next phase of digitization within this industry is Industrial IoT (IIoT). With IIoT, analytics become action through predictive maintenance, automated field service, and predictive modeling.

The same thought line is applicable in other industries. Another example would be Connected Health. As digital solutions have proven ways to decentralize clinical trials and move patient care to a remote monitoring approach (which is use-case specific), IoT in healthcare can drive this trend into lasting viability and ultimately expand as technology becomes more widespread and accessible in this industry.

The success of an IoT deployment is largely dependent on how it is structured leveraging the building blocks of IoT. These building blocks consist of the hardware, connectivity, data management, and services that create the foundation of IoT. This building block is what is collecting and transmitting data. The next building block is responsible for computing that data and turning it into action. The last building block is concerned with accessing that data, whether it’s through an API, a preconfigured solution, or some other user interface that allows the solution adopter to access and act on that data.

KORE CTO Tushar Sachdev will discuss this topic in more detail during the keynote address at IMC’s IoT Days Fall. The keynote, “The Decade of IoT: Building Blocks for Continued Success” will be at 9:30 a.m. ET on September 21.

KORE will also be presenting on IoT security on the second day of IoT Days Fall on September 22. KORE CIO Chris Francosky will deliver a spotlight presentation at 10:45 a.m.. The topic will concern how to secure the IoT DNA, which stands for Device, Networks, and Applications. This high-level approach to considering the IoT technology stack can begin to remove some of the complexities associated when approaching security solutions.

The full-scale coverage that comes with securing the IoT DNA is delivered through three key methods in strategy, deployment, and managed services. This simplified method can help mitigate some of the challenges associated with IoT deployments and security concerns.

Recent research conducted by Kaleido Intelligence indicated security as a top concern among cellular adopters and non-adopters. Security challenges have historically centered around a fragmented ecosystem and a lack of standardization, according to Gartner.

The IoT DNA approach and the key methods associated with the device, network, and application segmentation helps build security by design along the entire IoT stack that can help minimize cybersecurity risks.
