#NCSAM: Organizations at Higher Risk of Cyber-Attacks Due to IoT Expansion

  • Organizations are at much higher risk of cyber-attack due to the expansion of IoT devices in their networks over the past year.
  • The analysis, which looked at the multi-layer threats and weakness impacting current IoT supply chain ecosystems, has been published during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which is this year focusing on the role individual users can play in enhancing the security of IoT devices.
  • Supply chain attacks in IoT can come in two forms: from software installed in a certain device that has been compromised to hide malware, and from a piece of hardware implanted or modified to change a device’s behavior.
