In January of 2020, both the UK and California introduced new laws that will significantly tighten security requirements for IoT devices and networks, and other countries are sure to follow. The laws go well beyond simply requiring that IoT devices be provided with unique passwords. With spending on IoT security projected to reach USD $830 billion this year, new concepts like machine learning, trusted environments, 5G, and “security by design” are all sure to play a role.
