IoT Security Checklist for Properly Protecting Connected Solutions

IoT security is unarguably one of the biggest challenges that organizations face when deploying connected solutions, as the risks associated with a security breach can be devastating. Because traditional IT security practices and processes do not directly translate to IoT technologies, many organizations struggle to properly understand and implement the security features and functionalities necessary to protect their businesses – and their customers – from potential threats. In fact, nearly one third of IT leaders claim security is their top barrier to IoT success.


Ensuring robust IoT security requires thorough planning throughout the entire IoT implementation process, from concept, to development, through to deployment and ongoing operational management. In this guide, “IoT Security Checklist for Properly Protecting Connected Solutions,” we identify several of the most common mistakes that are made when securing IoT solutions and provide detailed information and tips regarding critical IoT security activities that organizations should consider for each component involved in their IoT deployment. Covering the device, network infrastructure, data transfer, and application layers, you will gain insights from a targeted checklist that will guide you in laying a strong foundational approach to IoT security.
