CommLaw Group IoT Attorney Ron Quirk was quoted in today’s IT Business Edge article, Internet of Things Security a Serious Problem But Help is on the Way.
“The FCC points to a reality that is difficult to deal with: The sheer number of IoT endpoints and the need that they be as inexpensive as possible makes it unlikely that vendors will voluntarily go the extra security mile. For that reason, the FCC may change its equipment certification rules to enforce a higher level of security from the vendor and manufacturing communities.”
