BBSPs of such products as internet access, VoIP, and media content, are in a beneficial position with the opportunity to have a direct relationship with their customers through their infrastructures and deployed devices. However, their close contact with consumers is threatened by various security breaches that can ruin offered value-added services and reputation. Therefore, it is the most essential for BBSPs to consider the security of their devices for not only the providers but also for customers’ data protection.
When deploying their consumer devices, BBSPs have to consider the integrity of the device and backend services, exploitation of their devices, and most importantly the confidentiality of the private and secret data. Customers trust in the companies to protect their secret information, like credit card details, usernames, and passwords, and if that trust is broken the development may face a crucial reputational crisis.
In this paper, our experts discuss real-world examples for the current IoT developments in the market and legislative activities of consumer devices. Moreover, Riscure provides insights into the security of consumer devices and how developers can address the challenges that arise when deploying a secure solution.
