Microsoft Calls for IoT Cybersecurity Policy Development

Microsoft emphasizes the need for new security policies as IoT growth heightens the consequences of cyberattacks.

Microsoft is urging for the development of cybersecurity policies to support the rapid growth of the IoT. A new white paper entitled "Cybersecurity Policy for the Internet of Things" addresses the need for specific IoT security practices.

Policymakers should look to the concerns of businesses, consumers, and the government to identify and understand security issues.

"There is no universally agreed-on definition of IoT, perhaps in part because the term IoT does not simply describe a new type of technical architecture, but a new concept that defines how we interact with the physical world," Microsoft states.

Businesses can integrate security as they develop and implement IoT devices and infrastructure. However, an IoT-specific approach is needed given the number of IoT devices, the scale and technical challenges of their deployments, and heterogeneity of systems.
