How to Build a Secure IoT Infrastructure

IoT will support business in the future by integrating a wide range of devices using the internet from personal computers, smart devices, sensors, to domestic appliances. With seamless interconnectivity for different systems with different functions, it allows better control and monitoring for each of these devices.

This technology can be an invaluable asset for business. However, increasing connectivity can make it a double edge sword. The wide implementation of IoT technology could make the back-end infrastructure overly complex, hard to manage, and hard to monitor. Without proper infrastructure, it will pose security risks such as data breach which is detrimental to customer’s trust and the development of your business.

With that being said, IoT infrastructure is not something that can be built overnight. Careful implementation and tactful guidance is needed so your business would not crumble due to inadequate security. Here are several ways make sure that your business will have the best security for IoT infrastructure:

1. Specify Your Needs

Before you start, find out what your company really needs. The best thing to do is to figure out how your business operates. A close observation on how your business operates will reveal any possible backdoors for cyber attack. Think of any devices or communication channels that might be vulnerable for breaches. This will help you conceive a general picture or strategy to overcome a particular security problem. 

2. Collaborate With Experts

Although it is becoming mainstream, IoT technology is still emerging. New types of technology such as 5G would be a disruptive addition to the equipment that your company is using. By partnering with trusted companies, your business can thrive  in securing sensitive data. At Telkomsel, we provide experts to give the best security solutions for expanding your IoT infrastructure.

3. Utilize Available Technology

There is a wide variety of devices, applications, and platforms that can help strengthen security measures. Make sure that your business is equipped with certified and dependable hardware that provides adequate security for your IoT infrastructure. Make a necessary update to a better hardware or system if you need to.

4. Be Prepared For Business Expansion

In the case of an expanding business, there will be a need to adjust their IoT infrastructure. As your business grows, there will be a need for more devices, big data processing and analytics. As you set up your company’s IoT infrastructure, you need to make sure that your security system matches the scale of your expansion.

5. Follow Standard Industry Regulations

Regulations are created to protect your business. Being aware and adhering to standard policies and regulation will not only strengthen the security of your IoT infrastructure but also keeping you on the right side of the law.

Preparation is key in order to build a secure IoT infrastructure. By taking the steps to secure your IoT infrastructure, you are building a sustainable business that can be trusted. It will ensure data safety which in turn will enhance customer experience.
