With an exponential growth of IoT and M2M devices, enabling security is one of the single biggest challenges in these systems. Due to the complex and light-weight nature of these distributed networks, there are a large number of attack vectors that need mitigation.

In this talk, we look at recent advances in IoT and M2M systems from the point of view of cybersecurity. We present the challenges in securing complex systems such as the Industrial IoT networks and describe new metrics such as 'Trustworthiness'.

We conclude the talk by discussing open research challenges and highlight key standards and industry forums in IoT/M2M security.
