IoT Security: Business Case Studies

  • Online

This course was developed by IEEE Educational Activities with the support from IEEE Internet of Things Technical Community. In this course, we examine work that has been done in Consumer, Commercial and Industrial Internet of Things (In) Security Attack Taxonomy and Case studies. We will present a taxonomy in IoT attacks which categorizes them in device, infrastructure, communication, and service attacks. We will map real-world case studies to these four categories. Additionally, we will examine nine different attack case studies belong to either Consumer, Commercial or Industrial IoT.

What you will learn:

  • Understand why it is important to use a Taxonomy when designing an IoT system in terms of security
  • Explore a proposed taxonomy
  • Review how the presented taxonomy can assist engineers in identifying IoT vulnerabilities in advance
  • Distinguish IoT applications over Consumer, Commercial and Industrial use
  • Explore real-world incidents of cyber-attacks
  • Examine common vulnerabilities that exist including:
    • How these are mapped to the presented taxonomy
    • How they can be mitigated
    • Best practices when designing an IoT system
