Cybersecurity and the Internet of Things (IoT)

London Business Hub is providing advice and information to help businesses and the self-employed work safely during COVID-19. This week, we provide advice and tips on securing Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The Internet of Things is made up of devices that connect together via the internet, facilitating autonomous capabilities and the collection and sharing of data.

A growing number of businesses are introducing IoT devices into the work environment. Therefore, it is important that these devices are configured correctly and securely to ensure your business mitigates any cybersecurity threats.

The Police Digital Security Centre (PSDC) has published a blog with advice and recommendations on how to keep IoT devices secure and protect your network.

Recommendations include:

  • Changing default passwords.
  • Using two-factor authentication.
  • Implementing a strong password policy.
