Infrastructures:What Are the Cybersecurity Challenges For IoT Today?

The booming increase in devices connected to the internet has allowed everyday people to become interconnected with their home, friends, and families with a simple push of a button or voice command, wherever they might be. However, with the increase of IoT products in the every day home comes the increased potential of cyber attacks. Hackers no longer need to target the computer. They can hack into automobiles, a vacuum, even a toothbrush and gain access to a consumer’s internet.
Bureau Veritas is teaming up with CEA-LETI a French research-and-technology organization. Philippe Sissoko, Director of Operations for Bureau Veritas’ Electrical & Electronic Business Line commented, ” CEA and Bureau Veritas have enjoyed a successful partnership in delivering innovative solutions to the TIC marketplace for many years. Most recently, we have been working to automate product cybersecurity testing, currently a manual process often taking many weeks, and sometimes months. We firmly believe our solution will disrupt the cybersecurity testing marketplace. Not only are we reducing the testing time to a matter of days, we are also improving the security protection thanks to the focus on the safety critical wireless/wired interfaces, our digitalization approach and the massive reference database of cyber-attacks that CEA maintain and update on an ongoing basis.” Click on the link below to read more on current wireless technology threats and what is the future of cyber security.
