With the falling costs and increasing capabilities of the computer and network hardware and bandwidth, more and more devices are being designed to work with the Internet. Each added device brings security risks for the device user and potentially many other Internet users. This Internet of Things (IoT) Security Training course examines the new and potentially quite serious IoT security issues that must be addressed by all Internet users.

In this IoT Security Training course, you will learn the concepts that underlie the Internet of Things (IoT), enabling technologies, how the various hardware/software components work together to power end-user and infrastructure applications, current and projected future applications, IoT application creation, vulnerabilities created by the IoT, types of security issues and threats posed by the IoT, and techniques for prevention, protection, and remediation.

Upon completing this Internet of Things (IoT) Security Training course, learners will be able to meet these objectives:

  • What constitutes the IoT
  • Visions of IoT
  • What is different about the IoT and why it matters
  • The creation of IoT applications and security implications
  • IoT architectures and related security concerns
  • How to address security issues raised by the rapidly growing IoT
  • We can adapt this Internet of Things (IoT) Security Training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this IoT Security Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the IoT Security course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the IoT Security course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.

The target audience for this Internet of Things (IoT) Security Training course:

  • Managers and IT professionals need to understand the basics of IoT as well as the present and emerging IoT security threats and solutions.

The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this Internet of Things (IoT) Security Training course is:
