Dear Reader,

The Internet of Things will be one of the big topics in the coming years. If the current status is any indication, this has big implications on security. How can the IoT be secured properly, what tools, processes and technologies will assist in doing so?

In our IoT focus weeks here on Cybersecurity Magazine we covered (and will cover) a broad range of topics related to the security of the Internet of things. You can find out which articles were featured below. But the topic is also hot around the web, which is why we selected a few interesting articles for you to read.

We hope you enjoy our current issue!

IoT focus weeks on Cybersecurity Magazine

We've had quite a few articles on the security of IoT in the past weeks. Check them out:

  • Operational Technology (OT) is often neglected when it comes to security. Galina Antova has some tipps on how to secure OT
  • Ahmed Banafa is a renowned expert on the IoT. We had the opportunity to interview him about the future of IoT security. Read his interview here and here. 

  • With the IoT specifically, security should be part of the development process right from the start. Read the article of Mark Loveless about how DevSecOps can help. 

  • Our friends from Smart Industry - the IoT Business Magazine had some interesting thoughts on the matter of IoT security a while back. Read their article here.

Not enough food for thought? Don't worry, our IoT focus week continue and we have a few more interesting articles up our sleeves. Be sure to check back regularly!
