How to gain control & become an IoT security expert

You've no doubt heard the vendor spiels and seen their solutions for gaining control of your Internet of Things environment. But do you truly have IoT under control? Like other things in IT, it can be pretty overwhelming, especially when you're struggling to keep your arms around your traditional network environment with cloud and mobile and all the complexities they bring. 

Well, IoT security doesn't have to be that difficult. It's complicated in terms of a well-run security program but, in many ways, there's really nothing new...I can assure you that if you step back to look at the bigger picture of what's going on with IoT security, from vendor marketing overload to understanding your network to fixing the basics, you can (and will) gain control of IoT if you take a measured approach. 

Here are several pieces I've created on IoT security that can help you in your endeavors:
