AWS Security releases IoT security whitepaper
We’ve published a whitepaper, Securing Internet of Things (IoT) with AWS, to help you understand and address data security as it relates to your IoT devices and the data generated by them. The whitepaper is intended for a broad audience who is interested in learning about AWS IoT security capabilities at a service-specific level and for compliance, security, and public policy professionals.
IoT technologies connect devices and people in a multitude of ways and are used across industries. For example, IoT can help manage thermostats remotely across buildings in a city, efficiently control hundreds of wind turbines, or operate autonomous vehicles more safely. With all of the different types of devices and the data they transmit, security is a top concern.
The specific challenges using IoT technologies present has piqued the interest of governments worldwide who are currently assessing what, if any, new regulatory requirements should take shape to keep pace with IoT innovation and the general problem of securing data. This whitepaper uses a specific example to cover recent developments published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the United Kingdom’s Code of Practice that are specific to IoT.
