5 – Plan the security lifecycle of your IoT devices

How do you plan the security lifecycle of your IoT devices? The security lifecycle of your IoT devices includes everything, from how you choose your suppliers, contract manufacturers, and other outsourced relationships to how you manage security in your third-party firmware and manage security events over time. With visibility into the full spectrum of actors and activities in your hardware and software supply chain, you can be better prepared to respond to compliance questions, detect and mitigate events, and avoid common security risks related to third-party components.

Follow the best practices and check if your workload is well-architected.
