Is a career in IoT Security a thing? And do traditional cyber security experts play this role?

I am wondering what are the skills needed regarding a career in IoT security?



It is in fact a thing since more and more of this stuff is finding it’s way into the corporate world.

Bigger still are the career opportunities in the OT (Operational Technology) field. Those are the SCADA, DCS, PLC type industrial control systems. There are already many vendors in this space as it’s growing quickly.

You will find a mix of people in the OT area. Some have come from the traditional IT background while others have come from the controls side. I think with the right people it can work either way as you need to learn both sides to be successful.
