    IoT security "works" practically the same as security for everything else that we're generally familiar with. The scope of the problems is different, though, and will remain different for years to come.

    One major difference can be thought of in terms of, say, Windows 95 PCs (or even DOS) being used at numerous points in a modern corporate application network. It's no longer feasible to keep Win95 devices updated to protect against modern threats.

    Many IoT objects are in a condition that keeps them from meeting modern threats. They might be too old, or have limited updatability (e.g., limited intelligence), or limited support (vendors might have gone out of business). Objects can even be hidden or otherwise unknown; they might not have been understood to be network-connected when installed.

    Or they've simply been forgotten. A control device (valve, switch, etc.) might have been installed 20 years ago. At that time, a network connection might not have been in place. It might only have connected to a stand-alone piece of equipment. Later upgrades to the facility could have extended networking to where it never reached before, and nobody knows that a new point of attack was created.

    In any case, security "works" the same. It mostly just needs to be implemented at many more points.
