08 Sep Feds to Follow New NIST Recommendations for IoT Data Protection
In the latest revision to its Special Publication 800-53, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) made several new recommendations on privacy and security controls for IoT devices that will serve as a guide for federal IT leaders and officials.
In an interview, NIST fellow and joint task force lead Ron Ross stressed that security and privacy teams work together in the implementation of privacy controls, especially since personally identifiable data is going out to the edge with IoT devices.
He added that vulnerabilities lie in areas of complicated systems which are not fundamentally understood.
