Risks related to IoT for companies

Toys, sports equipment, personal devices and IoT units are increasingly connected to corporate networks.

Specific research from Palo Alto Networks indicates that IT managers are unsure of having control over every IoT device in their environment.

IoT devices can include consumer (toys, cameras), commercial (everything from healthcare monitors to sensors and supply chains), enterprise products (routers, projectors), and industrial (logic controllers in factories and pipelines).

IBM estimates that there are approximately 31 billion IoT devices deployed worldwide, and the IoT deployment rate is now 127 devices per second.

The devices that employees innocently bring to an organization's network are often not designed for security and can be easy gateways to a company's most important information and systems.

To deal with this threat, security teams must be able to spot new devices, assess their risks, determine their normal behaviors, and quickly enforce security policies.

Command injection, the main vector of infection for threat actors, results from a poor configuration of IoT devices. Weak Telnet passwords are a contributing factor. Using a "wget" shell command, the threat actors modify permissions so that they can interact with the affected system.

Once the attacker gets full access to the device through the botnet, the firmware level can be changed and additional malware can be implanted on the device.
