Without security, the Internet of Things will cease to exist. With billions of new connected devices hitting the market over the next decade, IoT solution providers will need to understand the cybersecurity challenges unique to the Internet of Things. Those that do not will be prime targets for cyber criminals, who, as we have seen, will exploit any vulnerability with little regard for loss of capital or human wellbeing.

At every stage of the IoT value chain, companies are facing increasing pressure to take responsibility to embed security in their products from the beginning. Only through this approach can a secure and trusted market flourish. The GSMA, together with the mobile industry, has devised a range of valuable resources providing guidance and expertise to help companies with the challenge of securing the connected future.
