Gartner estimates there are about 6.4 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices today, such as DVRs, surveillance cameras, and many others, all connected to the Web and all with Internet (IP) addresses. By 2020, it is expected that the number of Web-connected devices will increase to 20.8 billion.

So why are these numbers relevant to cyber-security? An IoT fact is that these devices were not designed or developed with security at their core. Further, these devices are typically not configured securely.

As IoT becomes pervasive across industries, including healthcare, financial, and government, organizations must be prepared for this rising and disruptive threat. Further, the risk from IoT increases the challenge for addressing compliance mandates associated with sensitive and confidential information.

From this brief, you will learn:
• Examine why IoT = Internet of Threats.
• Step through how botnets and DDoS can be disruptive to sites and Web applications.
• Walk through an IoT Security Policy that addresses key compliance requirements.
• Develop a strategy for addressing such emerging threats in the context of your enterprise cyber security plan.
