8 Ways to Secure the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

Connected devices offer healthcare providers ways to remotely monitor patient health. Additionally, hospitals use these devices for enhanced patient care, including medication delivery and vitals monitoring. However, malicious actors often use unsecured IoMT as part of their attack methodologies.


IoT Devices Built to Meet Cybersecurity Needs

The Internet of Things (IoT) includes items such as smart appliances, smartwatches, and medical sensors. For organizations to enjoy all of the benefits and convenience of IoT devices, enterprise customers must fully understand the potential risks and threats to their systems and the underlying data. IoT devices often lack built-in security controls, a situation which creates risks and threats for federal agencies and consumers.


What is IoT Security? 6 Ways to Protect Your Devices

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a growing concern for today’s digitally-focused businesses. Every connected device you own can add another security concern to your list. If it collects and stores personal information and data, you’ve just added another attractive target for criminals to access your network. In fact, 57% of IoT devices are vulnerable to medium or high-severity attacks.


Securing IoMT devices to protect the future of Healthcare from rising attacks

The number of cybersecurity incidents reported within the healthcare industry has been steadily increasing since 2015 as the use of IoMT has become more widespread. With increasing numbers of IoMT devices being used for patient care, the attack surface among hospitals and doctors’ offices has grown dramatically as medical technology continues to expand.


Why penetration testing needs to be part of your IoT security

IoT devices are ubiquitous in our daily lives—whether it’s at home with connected home automation devices, or at work with connected factories, hospitals, and even connected cars. According to Gartner, there were over 20 billion IoT devices in 2020. As businesses globally over the past decade have transformed their processes with more embedded IoT-driven intelligence, these billions of connected devices have also become a soft target for cyber criminals.


7 Internet of Things Threats and Risks to Be Aware of

The internet of things (IoT) is a highly developed space that is home to a vast amount of sensitive data, making it a very attractive target for cybercriminals. Threats and risks continue to evolve as hackers come up with new ways to breach unsecured systems -- posing a threat to the ecosystem itself. Let’s take a look at the leading threats and risks to the IoT and the associated vulnerabilities that must be secured.


Defending the Internet of Things from hackers and viruses

The 2010 Stuxnet malicious software attack on a uranium enrichment plant in Iran had all the twists and turns of a spy thriller. The plant was air gapped (not connected to the internet) so it couldn’t be targeted directly by an outsider. Instead, the attackers infected five of the plant’s partner organizations, hoping that an engineer from one of them would unknowingly introduce the malware to the network via a thumb drive.


Six Terms to Up Your IoT Vocabulary

You know that uncomfortable feeling in the pit of your stomach when you didn’t study for the test and you think you’ll get a failing grade? You stare blankly at the test questions and feel completely lost and adrift. It’s like having a conversation with a colleague who casually drops a term or acronym related to the Internet of Things (IoT), and you suddenly find yourself on unfamiliar ground.
