IoT Security - Flash Networks
IoT security, also known as internet of Things security, plays a crucial role in safeguarding the connected devices and networks within the IoT realm. With IoT, internet connectivity is integrated into a wide range of interconnected computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals, and even people. Each entity possesses a distinct identifier and has the capability to seamlessly transfer data over a network. However, the integration of these devices with the internet exposes them to significant vulnerabilities if proper protection measures are not in place. IoT security is a major cybersecurity challenge due to the potential for DDoS attacks using botnets.

Top 4 IoT Security Threats and risks
A botnet in the IoT refers to a collective of compromised or infected IoT devices that are under the control of cybercriminals and used for harmful activities such as launching DDoS attacks or stealing sensitive data. The malware associated with botnets provides attackers with full control over the devices.
The value of IoT technology lies in its ability to connect devices, gather data, and make decisions based on analysis. However, the current naming system used for device connections, known as DNS, is outdated and unreliable for the scale, traffic, and security demands of today's IoT devices. In fact, DNS vulnerabilities have been exploited in high-profile cyber attacks, highlighting the urgent need for a more robust and secure system.
The purpose of using IoT ransomware is to strike the target at a specific time and place when they are unable to reset the device or counter the effects of the ransomware. The goal is to create a sense of urgency and encourage the target to pay the ransom. It is not about making irreversible changes to the device.
The use of IoT devices or sensors by employees within an organization, without IT's knowledge, is commonly referred to as Shadow IoT. Such devices include personal tablets, mobile devices, smart speakers, wireless thumb drives, and others, that are connected to the company network. Unfortunately, IoT sensors are not always visible on an organization's network, making them vulnerable to hackers and cybercriminals as IT cannot control or secure these devices.
Security threat notification
Subscribers receive a notification with the operator's logo informing them that access to harmful destination is blocked by the security platform.
