Top 5 maneiras de proteger os dados em 2018

A cada ano que passa, a utilização de enormes quantidades de dados está constantemente em ascensão, portanto chamado de "BigData". Isto inclui não somente o comercial mas o setor confidencial também (e. g. casas inteligentes, cidades inteligentes, etc.) Assim, toda essa transmissão interconectada, gerenciamento e processamento de dados por meio da tecnologia Internet das coisas (IoT) deve ser protegida imediatamente, mesmo que não tenhamos um conjunto padrão de regras éticas para processamento e gerenciamento de dados. Não seria a favor de qualquer empresa de IoT/data estabelecida ou emergente para exercer seus negócios, a menos que as preocupações de segurança pública e governamental sejam atendidas adequadamente. Apenas para um exemplo, você pode considerar o incidente fresco de Cambridge Analytica, uma empresa de dados que tenha usado mal dados públicos para alvejar eleitores específicos e influenciar negativamente o processo eleitoral. Assim, considerando tais graves propagandas acontecendo dentro da indústria de dados, aqui estão 5 melhores práticas que você pode usar para salvaguardar seus processos de dados e, eventualmente, ganhar a confiança de seus clientes e clientes tanto.

 

Top 5 maneiras que você pode proteger Big data

 

A segurança interna deve ser a primeira preocupação-:

 

segurança interna do escritório para dados

 

Porque o tratamento e processamento de dados é uma tarefa muito séria, e que envolve informações cruciais relacionadas a inúmeras entidades e pessoas; como um proprietário ou gerente você deve não somente assegurar-se de que os dados estejam seguros da ameaça externa mas que é seguro das fendas internas no escritório também. Esta é uma enorme responsabilidade em seus recrutadores de RH, bem como os gerentes diretos, que garantem a contratação da pessoa mais capaz de gerenciar e lidar com todos os aspectos do "BigData". A pessoa deve mentalmente e educacionalmente ser o mais apto para esta posição. Dar a tarefa de supervisionar e gerenciar dados para uma pessoa errada ou mal ajustada pode produzir resultados desastrosos tanto para a empresa quanto para os clientes/clientes.

 

Segurança de aperto em unidades de armazenamento de dados/servidores-:

 

segurança de dados em servidores de armazenamento

 

É talvez o Santo Graal da proteção e segurança dos dados; somente protegendo os servidores de armazenamento de dados e as unidades baseadas em nuvem, uma empresa pode alcançar a salvação nesta era de crescente agitação e infidelidade. Como um proprietário de empresa de dados ou IoT, proteger os equipamentos de armazenamento de dados deve ser um elemento fundamental na sua estratégia de dados. Muitas vezes, o processamento de dados massivo deve lidar com serviços não verificados e ou protocolos conflitantes em uma escala rápida, e é até os cientistas de dados para formular formas e técnicas para impedir o acesso não autorizado ao ecossistema de dados. Técnicas como SUNDR (repositório de dados não confiável seguro) e auto-Tiering, bem como outras, podem desempenhar um papel importante na proteção de seus dispositivos de armazenamento de dados e processamento.

 

Continua monitoramento e análise é importante-:

 

monitorização e análise de dados

 

É importante que o "BigData" deva ser continuamente monitorado e analisado em tempo real por um aplicativo de gerenciamento de dispositivo de dados IoT capaz. Isso é importante porque um monitoramento em tempo real pode alertar as unidades centrais de comando sobre um direito de intrusão não autorizado no momento em que isso acontece. Um alerta instantâneo significa uma solução instantânea que é igual a dados seguros e protegidos em nenhum momento. Finalmente, a análise fornecerá mais conhecimento aprofundado sobre cada evento importante no ecossistema de dados, permitindo que você e sua equipe de gerenciamento de dados compreendam melhor as lacunas e as conservem para evitar interrupções futuras dos mesmos erros.

 

Seu ecossistema de IoT tem pontos de extremidade seguros-:

 

Protegendo os pontos de extremidade do ecossistema IoT & data

 

Faça esta pergunta várias vezes por dia para si mesmo e para a sua equipa de gestão de dados: "os pontos finais do nosso ecossistema de dados estão firmemente seguros?" Se houver ainda menores "IFS" e "buts" no local, você não deve desperdiçar um único segundo mais e obter seus pontos de extremidade de dados seguro imediatamente! Uma dessas maneiras é usar somente dispositivos/aplicativos de certificados confiáveis para obter acesso a todos os pontos de extremidade. Um teste de recurso regular de dispositivos confiáveis em seu ecossistema de dados pode muito bem fornecer insights credíveis sobre o status de segurança e erros. Tudo em tudo, você não deve esquecer essa coisa: sua estratégia de proteção de dados grande deve implementar tais técnicas que podem localizar com êxito os hackers éticos e malware escondendo atrás de um dispositivo/aplicativo confiável imitado. Isso finalmente proteger seus ativos de dados contra os ataques mais vil.

 

Use modelos matemáticos de criptografia-:

 

Criptografia matemática para dados

 

Nossa dica final para proteger "BigData" está usando uma criptografia matemática. Matemática, como todos nós sabemos muito bem, é talvez a estrutura mais precisa e perfeita para alcançar quase qualquer resultado técnico, portanto, a linguagem da lógica é usada com precisão. A implementação de um sistema de criptografia matematicamente trabalhada em seu ecossistema de dados, que usa protocolos SSE para localizar somente dados criptografados, IoT e empresas de dados pode tornar o gerenciamento e o processo de dados mais seguros. As empresas podem utilizar uma variedade de técnicas de criptografia matemática para proteger dados como criptografia baseada em identidade, criptografia de dados relacionais, criptografia baseada em atributos e outros módulos também. O resultado, como sempre foi, será o melhor em proteger o seu ecossistema de dados a partir de uma variedade de movimentos malignos externos.

 

Conclusão

Então, qual é a maior takeaway deste artigo? FAÇA O QUE FOR PRECISO PARA PROTEGER SEUS DADOS INTEIROS E O ECOSSISTEMA DO GERADOR-DISPOSITIVO! (Há uma razão para eu quebrar as leis de escrita e bonés-em toda a sentença). Eu posso ver claramente um bom futuro, e um sucesso sem precedentes, para as empresas de dados IoT e que estão pagando um acima e além da atenção para a implementação de tecnologias de segurança em sua infra-estrutura de ti, porque essa é a única maneira que eles serão capazes de sobreviver ao reforço /Advanced onmassacts por hackers antiéticos, que definitivamente vai se tornar mais forte nos próximos dias.

How IoT Technology Can Save On-Land Retailers

Despite the fact that IoT technology still has some grave issues of its own, but the potentialities of this great and rising technology are also numerous. While security-related issues will surely be fixed eventually, and the only thing that will be left after that is the full-fledged benefits IoT has to offer. You might not clearly know as of now but IoT is expected to play a very crucial role in saving the integrity, and the overall business, of land-based retail stores. How’s that possible when IoT is more about facilitating features/functionalities which rely on the web-based connectivity? Well, stick with us to know how IoT can help save brick-and-mortar store industry (important if you have one as well).

 

 

One of the major reasons for making such a speculation is to see the current trends of shopping. The consumer of the 21st century is more inclined towards user-friendly and eco-friendly ways of things. The boom of online convenience and money-saving shopping trend brought on by the Amazon Inc., in the mid of 1990s, entirely reformed the meaning of shopping.

 

Now, in the decade of 2010’s, customers are more likely to go for an online shopping place rather than killing their comfort to go downtown and buy from a brick-and-mortar store. Sounds like a drastic news for on-land retailers, right? But over here comes IoT technology in the play to secure and procure the integrity, and the businesses, of brick-and-mortar stores in this age of “Digital Revolution.”

 

Land-based retailers can utilize the help of IoT-powered applications that can intelligently manage the stock, use “smart” order tracking techniques, efficient product management via IoT sensors and lots of other functionalities. Using these, and other IoT features exclusive to land-based retailers, our brick-and-mortar stores will undergo a transformation which will make them almost similar to what online stores are.

 

But adopting IoT technology, even for retailers, takes us back to the currently most concerned questions regarding IoT’s sanctity: What would be the security risks which both the customer and store owners had to cope with? How will the crucial consumer data and financial information be kept safe from all possible unethical hackers? These are some of those concerns that are as legitimate in the IoT industry as its remarkable tally of benefits.

 

First off, on-land retailers who are looking to deploy commercial IoT solutions must need to have a concise and concrete security strategy. This also includes the purchasing of only the most reliable IoT devices and network providers out there. Store owners should seek the help of professional IoT/M2M service providers in order to make their devices and network highly secure. A monthly maintenance plan should be in place to cover up any-known loopholes in the deployed IoT devices. As far as data is concerned, it should be encrypted with the highest encryption technology possible.

 

Once the security and privacy concerns are precisely met, retailers can then move on to provide a variety of beneficial experiences to keep attracting customers to their stores. Some of the benefits IoT can give to a brick-and-mortar store we have described briefly above, but the list is really too big to be included in this minor article. Therefore, if you have a land-based store of your own and worried about what would become of your business in this digital age, look no further then IoT technology to your rescue.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Opts For International IoT Security Standard

The members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have proposed an international call for setting up security standards for IoT globally. This objective has been proposed on the basis of rapid growth of the Internet-connected devices around the globe. The IoT industry is already predicted to worth a whopping $267 billion by the year 2022, as Mr. Louis Columbus writes in Forbes magazine. That is to say, there will be around 18 billion IoT-powered devices from the total tally of 29 billion connected devices in the world, a forecast prediction by the famous European mobile network provider Ericsson Corporation.  Considering such gigantic numerical stats, the security challenges and the fears expressed about them are as real as the predictions themselves.

 

Quite recently, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce issued a report which is known as, “The IoT Revolution and Our Digital Security.” In this report, members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce discussed the rapid growth of IoT, and exclusively the related cybersecurity challenges with its growth. The US business personals gave a set of security standards for global IoT-powered devices in order to efficiently cope with the evident security challenges facing IoT industry.

 

According to the chamber of commerce officials themselves, while most of the standards are easier to abide by every IoT service provider, some of them might not be easier to get abide by IoT providers worldwide. But nevertheless, the official traders’ agency of the US stresses the importance of following the proposed security laws internationally to keep up with the fast growth of IoT.

 

“Traditional security methods available in heaps are completely inadequate to fight the novel security challenges proffered by the growing IoT industry; we need immediate and new strong security protocols for all,” says Mr. Clovis Lacerda, founder of Parlacom Brazil, an IoT/M2M service providing company. The biggest obstacle in the global implementation of the proposed security practices by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the consideration of the national security policies by the American government, which the U.S. Chamber of Commerce must have to abide by. However, Mr. Sean Heather, the VP of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’ Centre for Global Regulatory Cooperation (GRC) said:

 

“National policy differences threaten to create obstacles that serve as market barriers to the deployment of connected goods and services and threaten to undermine the potential of the IoT. To avoid these barriers, governments should support the development of international standards which adhere to global best practices and ensure an internationally coordinated approach.”

 

Seems a very legit and fair proposal by Mr. Heather, right? However, under the current U.S. administration in the White House, a globally supportive framework which considers everyone’s fears/considerations for the global IoT security standards is much to be desired about. However, for their part, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has proposed a set of best IoT security practices for the global IoT operations to be considered by every participating government.

 

For those of you who would like to view the complete proposed laws by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, please see the eBook “The IoT Revolution and Our Digital Security.”  It has been expressed in a positive nature that the adoption of these security standards globally for IoT industry will make it safer for all and even helps to grow IoT faster than its current speed. The direct reason for this huge adoption will be the high trust and reliability factor that will accompany every IoT project in the future.

7 Most Dreaded IoT Security Concerns Right Now

IoT (Internet of Things) technology is the talk right now in every major IT company around the world. But the state of its security has been the topmost concern among the technology gurus and beginning startups in this sector. With such fresh examples like the “WannaCry DDoS attack, which has affected more than 250, 000 connected devices globally, the efforts to evaluate and work on fixing security loopholes found in the IoT networks and hardware devices got serious pace. The “WannaCry” case was not the only one in the recent times, but there is an assortment of cyber-attacks happened in the recent years that has opened our eyes to the potential dangers such onslaughts can cause. So, for all those who are concerned, here are the top 7 most dreaded IoT security dodges that could prove costly.

The “Smart” Home Security

Smart Homes industry is predicted to worth around $121.73 billion by the year 2022.  With this growth rate comes a big responsibility of providing secure and reliable protocols for all connected IoT devices as well. A smart home is a completely internet-controlled living domain which, if defunctionalized, can not only cause domestic chaos but it can put the lives of the persons living in that home in danger as well. Therefore, to all those IoT solutions providers whose targeted market is the homeowners, they should set up and follow a high-class standard of security in their IoT infrastructure. The security protocols should safeguard not only the externally connected devices but the internal ones in the smart home as well.

The Medical Concern

The second biggest industry which is expected to be highly affected by the growing IoT industry is the medical, or health care, industry. There are a growing number of medical devices controlled and operated via IoT technology in these times, and much more will adapt to this technology in the near future (around a worth of approx. $117 billion). Given such a scenario, an unethical cyber-attack on a series of connected medical devices (whether in one or numerous hospitals around the world) could produce such horrible results that we cannot even imagine in our wildest imaginations.

For example, if a series of connected electrocardiography machines (heart monitoring machines) are compromised in any way, it can highly endanger the lives of all monitored patients. “Providing top class security essentials with healthcare IoT solutions is a big and complex challenge for all healthcare IoT providers which they must need to address, and as soon as possible to stay useful and relevant,” cautions Clovis Lacerda, Founder of Parlacom Brazil, an IoT/M2M solution provider in South America.

DVRs (Digital Video Recorders)

A common user might not be able to think that deep as to how come a DVR can cause chaos (even on a global scale)? Well, in the truest sense it can now, especially in these days of IoT. On Oct 21, 2016, United States of America suffered one of the most major internet service outage in the country’s IT history, an attack which was propagated with the help of a massive number of hacked CCTV cameras and DVRs across America.

This event alerted the DVR manufacturers and service providers and promoted the concern for developing a tough and resilient security protocol along with these fragile connected IoT devices. Obviously, the reliance on digital technology will further grow the usage of such devices, and with them, the need for tougher security essentials as well.

The Extremely Fragile & Important: Baby Monitors

Imagine a device which actually acts as a half-admin to your tiny baby while you are away in the other part of the house doing some work? Can you imagine the intensity of harm that possibly could happen in the case the device is being hacked by an unethical enemy? This is why a Baby Monitor (which is a web-connected device and managed by cloud services) must need be highly secure and have a concrete security protocol to protect itself against a genuine malice. Considering the danger and imminent need of a concrete security plan, a private US security company Rapid7 conducted a study on the current status of security in IoT sector (especially devices like Baby Monitors). You should check the report as it is very insightful for an IoT provider.

Administrative Machines

This is another area where the need for some concrete security rules in order to protect IoT devices, and along with it the whole functioning industries/plants is preeminent. The target here is exclusively the administrative machines which controls various types of functions that covers numerous important functionalities, whether in regards to domestic industrial operations or a plant that provides vital services to, say, a whole “Smart City”.

Administrative machines are run and managed by chips and sensors, which in turn controlled and managed by web-based networking from a central commanding unit. Securing these is a complex, but a must task indeed. A 35-page SlideShare presentation created by Meetup9 on IoT and sensors security in 2016 could be the report you should view once on this issue.

The Network Router

The network routers, or routers for short, is the central device which multiplies and transfer network-based connectivity from one point to several devices in a home or office. Despite being invented in the 80s, the device still holds an undisputed place in network transferring in many homes and offices around the world, a fact which also makes it very vulnerable. According to an article published in CSO, it has termed network routers as the weakest link in the current IT world.

This vulnerability leaves network routers open to unethical hackers who may easily get access to the all of the connected devices via a router in your home and office. “Considering the situation of network-based routers, we need to understand that the compatibility between an old firmware and the new IoT technology requires much greater work on security than anything else,” forewarns Mr. Lacerda of Parlacom Brazil.

SCADA System Attack

The final on our list of 7 most dreaded IoT security loopholes is perhaps the greatest of all: The SCADA system attack. The abbreviation itself is quite threatening of SCADA”: Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems. SCADA systems were not always connected to the web-based network, but with IoT going mainstream, most of the systems in SCADA model are now connected to a network and this requires a thorough security analysis for them moving onwards.

Especially considering the fact that SCADA systems control and obtain a huge amount of data (and data could be related to anything and or any person) security becomes the topmost concern for these connected devices as well. So, keep a lookout on what is to come further in the IoT industry as technologists are already busy in crafting that mammoth “magic” security protocols for the growing IoT industry. We hope that all those hard efforts will pay off soon for the benefit of all mankind.

How An Actual Malware Helps Make IoT Devices More Secure & Safe

You might not have heard about this, in most cases previously, that a harmful intruder like a malware might actually help make things more secure and safe for networked devices. Well, there is one such malware currently threatening the security of IoT devices globally, or at least what was being supposed of up till now.
