Unsafe IoT safes

  By Hagai Bar-El   , 154 words
Categories: Security Engineering, Cyber Security

I have been saying that one of the challenges with securing IoT is that IoT device makers don’t have the necessary security background, and the security industry does not do enough to make cyber-security more accessible to¬†manufacturers. We should therefore not be surprised that 150 years of experience in making robust safes and¬†transferring money securely, did not help Brinks once they introduced a USB slot into one of their new models.

So here is a first post on this topic, with an anticipation for writing additional installments in the future.

I will address a few random topics that come to my mind this moment, about staffing, external interaction, being in the know, and logging. Feel free to bring up other topics of interest as comments to this post.
