EXECUTIVE SUMMARY(PDF)

The message from 13 Internet of Things (IoT) specialists during this month's Heavy Reading Thought Leadership Council (TLC) forum was clear: Service providers think they're doing a good job with IoT security. In fact, when asked to grade their company's current level of knowledge concerning IoT security, 38 percent of panelists gave their companies scores of A and an equal number gave a B score.

It's encouraging that the majority of service providers in the forum are well on their way to implementing IoT security plans. While just under 40 percent are at the halfway mark in terms of completing their security plans – putting them about two years away from completion – about 30 percent will have those plans completed by the end of this year.

If there's an area that's in need of a reality check, it's for those service providers that believe their security technology is so good that they'll never experience an IoT security breach: 38 percent of TLC panelists fall on this particular sword. An equal number, however, readily admit that they expect such a breach within the next two years.

IoT Focus Group: Service Providers Assured About IoT Security was generated from a Q&A with service provider employees who are IoT experts. This focus group was asked 10 questions about technology, revenue and expectations related to IoT security. The results clearly indicate that service providers believe they're doing a good job with IoT security.

Almost two thirds (62 percent) of TLC members say IoT security will provide some additional revenue for their company, as shown in the excerpt below. One panelist specified, "IoT Security has a lot of promise for generating revenue; unfortunately, there is not enough of an emphasis in the consumer market today to make this an excellent source of revenue. Consumers – and even businesses – are quick to forget breaches of the past. Additionally, IoT security should be an attribute of a well-designed and implemented IoT solution that is baked into the cost model versus a set of activities or services that happen after IoT deployment."

Service Providers Get High Marks for IoT Security

Heavy Lifting Analyst Notes

Any organization that's considering implementing Internet of Things (IoT) will quickly learn two things: IoT creates a ton of new opportunities and IoT introduces a ton of security issues.

But the overwhelming majority of IoT specialists in Heavy Reading's Thought Leadership Council (TLC) say service providers are doing a really good job of preparing their networks for IoT security, as found in the newest TLC report, IoT Focus Group: Service Providers Assured About IoT Security. Council members, who are experts in IoT, were asked a series of ten questions about the state of IoT security in terms of technology, revenues and budgeting and future expectations.

In fact, 77% of TLC members gave their companies either an A or B grade for overall knowledge regarding security for IoT. One TLC member who gave an A score explained, "Many companies focus only a single component of a security solution, whereas our knowledge spans end to end. Also, our company has a long history of investigating security breaches to provide insight into threats and the current state of IoT security."

Only 15% of TLC members said their customers expect them to provide all IoT security. By and large, forum members said, service providers are expected to provide IoT security, but their customers also are taking precautions on their end to secure IoT. One panelist drew the following correlation, "A homeowner can install a great lock on the door, but the he still needs to take precautions, such as utilizing the provided security mechanisms (i.e., turning the door lock) and making sure that other risks are addressed (such as remembering to close and lock windows, unplug the coffee pot, etc.)."

Another key takeaway in the report is that almost 40% of TLC members expect that their service provider companies will never experience an IoT security breach. One such panelist said, "We have cutting-edge technology to prevent a breach." The remaining TLC members injected a bit more reality into the picture by stating that IoT breaches have already occurred or they expect them to within the next two years.

TLC is a Heavy Reading research initiative that consists of panels of CSP experts focused on key areas of telecom development, including B/OSS transformation, SD-WAN, automation, 5G, Emerging Technologies & Services (Project 2025) and IoT. Members participate in Q&A forums several times a year, and all information disclosed by Council members remains anonymous.
