New NIST and DHS IoT Guidance Signal Regulatory Growth

November 30, 2016 , The Cybersecurity Law Report

Jennifer Martin is quoted in a Cybersecurity Law Report article regarding Internet of Things guidance from regulatory agencies such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Department of Homeland Security. To best implement the advice from these sources, Martin says companies need to (1) understand the basic building blocks and principles of a good security program; (2) identify specific regulatory expectations for their particular industry; and (3) identify what role they play in the supply chain or device life cycle (i.e., software developers, integrators or manufacturers, cloud service providers, users).

According to Martin, companies do not need to worry about all of the various regulations and guidance “because they pretty much share the same broad principles except to the extent they are sector-specific.” She adds that in addition to education and raising awareness, collaboration is essential across departments and stakeholders. However, “getting all of the stakeholders on the same page can be difficult,” she says.
