Network Security for IoT & IIoT Environments

Thumbnail for post.


In this course, Bruce will discuss cyber security references, standards and architectures regarding the network security of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Given the constraints of things, security often relies on the underlying security of the transport network, but this can be challenging with different network deployment models and different architectural approaches. This course will share ideas and suggestions for network operators to consider when securing networks that support things.


This course will cover the following topics:

  • Overview of Internet of things (IoT) & Industrial internet of things (IIoT) Architectures
  • Overview of Security Standards and References for Internet of things (IoT) Network Security
  • Different Network Deployment Models and security requirements
