ATIS Offers Report on IoT Security
Tuesday, March 19, 2019 | Comments

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) released a new report that provides the fundamentals needed to perform risk assessments for internet of things (IoT) applications and services. As the IoT accelerates, there is a growing need to protect all assets involved from attack and from maliciously being turned into a source of attack on other users.

The report, called “An Architectural Risk Analysis for Internet of Things (IoT) Services,” helps IoT designers, architects and planners understand the risks their product or service faces so that they can address them in a direct and quantifiable way.

“Through helping to better understand the risks from cyber attacks with a wide range of intents as well as how to protect against them, this analysis makes a major contribution toward furthering IoT innovation,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller.

The report uses the ATIS Cybersecurity Architectural Risk Analysis (ARA) to establish a framework for assessing cybersecurity risk and applies the ARA to general IoT solutions involving network operators. By using it, developers can ensure proper security is part of their solutions by design. The ARA identifies specific security mitigations that can address the most serious threats. As a result, it can suggest the best expenditure of time, money and resources to fortify an asset to mitigate the most serious risks given the specific IoT application and associated attributes.
