BSA | The Software Alliance has released a dozen principles for securing Internet of Things technology, calling for an approach that “seamlessly” integrates security in devices, networks, and the cloud, and is driven by stakeholder collaboration.
The software group says the remote-work security challenges raised during the COVID-19 pandemic highlight the need for a comprehensive policy approach to IoT security. The principles, released Thursday, include looking beyond devices to craft policies that address the entire IoT ecosystem, creating incentives for IoT lifecycle security, embracing multistakeholder approaches and seeking global harmonization.
Action on IoT security “is more urgent than ever before” amid the COVID-19 pandemic, BSA says. The group also recently hosted a discussion with the National Institute of Standards and Technology on software security and issued a framework on that topic last year.
