The UK Government Department of Digital, Media, Culture and Sport (DCMS) recently released a report aimed to ensure that the Internet of Things (IoT) is secure by design, with security built in from the start.
The IoT, and the data-driven innovation it promises, provide a wealth of opportunities for the UK for improving public health, protecting the environment, and enhancing transportation safety and efficiency, among many other benefits. However, the increase in ubiquitous connectivity brings significant cyber security risks as well.
CA Technologies applauds the release of this report as security will be critical to realizing the benefits of the IoT.
