New rules set out best practice for IoT devices, but are the makers going to listen?

Internet of Things (IoT) devices should never be equipped with universal default passwords, and any credentials or personal data within the device must be securely stored, while devices must provide be easy for consumers to configure and delete data from. The requirements are just some of those featured in a report which sets out suggestions for overhauling the security of the IoT in order to protect consumers and industry from the growing risk of these devices being hacked and attacks carried out using compromised connected devices. It comes after the Mirai botnet attack caused disruption around the globe, while various IoT products ranging from children's toys to industrial control systems have been found to be vulnerable to hackers after being released with cyber security seemingly an afterthought.
