5 Questions About IoT Security Act With U.S. Senator Mark Warner
A bill introduced in the U.S. Senate would create minimum security standards for IoT devices that are deployed on government networks.

The Internet of Things Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2019 — introduced by Warner (D-Va.) and Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) — would require the National Institute of Standards and Technology to issue recommendations that address secure development, identity management, patching, and configuration management for IoT devices.
