World : End-to-end security “a must” for smart city IoTs

CEO of Crypto Quantique, Shahram Mossayebi, gives his insight on securing IoT networks within smart cities

More insights have been gained regarding the challenges around securing IoTs within smart cities, and how they can be overcome, by Information Age.

IoT security is a complex issue for experts, with the UK government calling for tougher security for IoT devices earlier in 2018. Antivirus software can’t be installed on IoT devices, like they can on PC’s, which creates an added complication.

With this in mind, the task of securing smart cities that are heavily reliant on IoT will be more challenging, and company CTOs that utilise smart networks or plan on doing so in the future could see implementing a cybersecurity strategy for their network early on as a high priority.
