On November 15, 2016, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published security-implementation guidance for interconnected devices, including the Internet of Things. The special publication, Systems Security Engineering: Considerations for a Multidisciplinary Approach in the Engineering of Trustworthy Secure Systems, spans more than 250 pages and serves as a guide for systems engineers seeking to address security issues by developing more defensible and survivable systems. The guidance principally focuses on engineering-based solutions to address security risks in the design and building of trustworthy, secure systems. With sophisticated cyberattacks on the rise, this guidance may serve as an important resource for businesses in identifying and mitigating security risks.
