How To Overcome Smart Sensor Security Breaches

Smart sensor technology offers many advantages, including providing exact, near real-time data that can aid decision-making and automation.

FREMONT, CA: Smart sensor technology provides many benefits, including highly accurate, near-real-time data that may aid decision-making and automation. Smart sensors can give information about nearly all aspects of a workspace, from occupancy to energy ambient conditions to human mobility, in time, cost, and energy savings.

So far, everything is OK. Yet, some organizations may hesitate to implement innovative technology due to security concerns. Below are some potential obstacles and how organizations might conquer them in this section.

Protection of personal data: Several businesses are concerned about exposing their data. Still, storing it on a cloud platform is far safer than on a home computer. Encryption on the best smart sensor devices is also unbelievably secure—it would take roughly 100 billion years to crack even the smartest computer programs.

Interfaces that assist: While the IoT devices may be secure, people risk confronting security issues if the interfaces they communicate with are not. The apps, services, and protocols they utilize need some attention. Device authentication can aid by limiting access to a device and its data to only authorized users. Meantime, digital certificates allow an authorized digital entity to securely send data, such as a computer or IoT device.

Networking in information technology: Consider a gateway, like Pressac's, that can transmit data through SIM or 4G and is not linked to the IT network.

IoT devices that have been forgotten: Few of these linked devices, especially in larger organizations, can be ignored, leaving them more open to exploitation. IoT management tools can help in this endeavor by supplying a centralized view of all connected devices, monitoring, maintaining, updating them, and detecting and solving any security problems.

Password security: Devices with default or readily guessable passwords may be exposed to hacking. Consider options, including one-time passwords that users update upon device installation, two-factor or biometric authentication, and account lockout.

Skills shortages: Fear of applying new technology is often motivated by a lack of internal expertise. Still, users dismiss intelligent technology at their peril—it is here to stay. Training, advice, upskilling, and external support are all easily available to ensure IoT devices are exploited safely and securely.
