How to Build a Secure Network of Internet of Things (IoT) Devices

[fa icon="pencil'] Posted by Priyank Ghedia [fa icon="calendar'] April 10, 2018 [fa icon="tags'] Cisco, Networking, Data Security, Information Security, IoT

It’s become a hot topic in the last decade, but IoT has actually been around much longer than that even. One of the first mainstream consumer-facing applications was implemented in 1982. It was a smart Coca-Cola vending machine that reported the status of the vending machine so a technician could be sent to refill the cans when it was running low.
