Internet of Things (IoT)

Internet of Things (IoT) describes an advanced set of technologies and refers to a wide ecosystem where interconnected devices and services collect, exchange and process data in order to adapt dynamically to a context. IoT is tightly bound to cyber-physical systems and in this respect is an enabler of Smart Infrastructures by enhancing their quality of service.

Smart infrastructure, enabled by technologies such as IoT, offer numerous advantages by bringing serious cost savings and efficiencies to a typical application on Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing, but also to eHealth, smart homes, etc. But these kinds of data-driven environments, fuelled by connected devices and network connectivity, become a new attack surface for cyber threats.

ENISA develops guidance to secure IoT and Smart Infrastructures from cyber threats, by highlighting good security practices and proposing recommendations to operators, manufacturers and decision-makers. ENISA’s recommendations span different facets of the IoT ecosystem, including devices, software development lifecycles, networks, etc.
