5 Important Tips to Secure the IoT Data Transfer

With the rapid development of Internet of Things (IoT), many businesses which use this technology begin to attach great importance to the safety of IoT data transfer. If you want to protect your data in transit, you can refer to following 5 tricks.

Focused on particular companies’ needs, Internet of Things (IoT) technology combines many devices which have embedded systems and can access the network to collect and exchange data. Obviously, data transfer in this kind of case is pretty frequent, thus to protect this transit process is a huge task. Don’t worry. 5 powerful tips here can help you deal with the object effectively.

IoT data transfer

1.Prevent cyber risk

Failing to secure data or network may lead to business interruption, financial loss, or reputational damage. As cybercriminals are also increasing rapidly with modern technology, you should take strong measures to prevent cyber risk. For example, you can provide security feature to the hardware of the IoT technology like encryption to the Bluetooth. Besides, you can limit the access to the cloud-based storage because data is usually transmitted from a device to the cloud.

2.Implement Random Number Generation (RNG)

Random number generation (RNG) is the foundation of security algorithms. As common sources of entropy like mouse and keyboard events can’t be used on most of embedded systems. You should implement random number generation (RNG) in the hardware to improve data security.

3.Implement crypto stack in hardware

Crypto operations in computer are expensive. For instance, RSA public key algorithms uses y = pow(x, e) mod n operation. It may cost seconds or even some minutes to complete as it is depending on the key size. Therefore, to establish a safe connection and keep the connection available is too expensive when considering the CPU time, the battery life, and etc.

4.Follow the standards

Imagine such a case that your company has a strict security policy, but only a few employees abide by its rules. Then what will occur? That must be a great mess and the policy will be empty talk. Accordingly, you should train every employee until they have a clear cognition about rules. And at the same time finding ways to ensure all the employees will follow the standards.

5.Build a disaster recovery plan

You should know that there is a saying “just in case”. Even if you think your precautions are perfect, various factors may lead to unexpected disasters in some cases. Under this circumstance, an effective disaster recovery plan is of great importance. For example, keeping a recovery plan for pst corruption can increase the success of an Outlook recovery attempt.
