Secure IoT Devices on Campus
Internet of Things devices are proliferating on college and university campuses. So, how do IT professionals at these institutions prepare for the security risks associated with IoT? Integrate the devices to student experiences and use software to understand those experiences, IT leaders say. That way, it will be easier to provision network services accordingly, says Jerry Sheehan, CIO of Montana State University.

- Work with a consortium of vendors to combat and control IoT security risks.
