A comprehensive guide to securing the Internet of Things
As the number of Internet-connected devices grows, the potential security challenges of the so-called "Internet of Things," or IoT, can no longer be ignored. The web of interconnected devices promises both enormous benefits to users and serious security threats, due to the sensitive data those devices will share.

This means, first, understanding how traditional threats, like DDoS attacks, are altered by the IoT, what all-new challenges the IoT creates and what steps must be taken now to get a viable and effective IoT policy in place.
