NIST calls for federal agencies to consider the protection of device security, data security and privacy as high-level risk mitigation goals. The standardization agency recommends cybersecurity personnel to assess and understand IoT device risk challenges, tailor policies to address issues and implement mitigation practices across IoT devices.
