10 Skills IoT Integrators Need Today to Succeed
With IoT, there is more to worry about than with traditional IT, according to Chan, and within the IoT ecosystem it’s everybody’s problem, including the device makers and the cellular providers. “As an IoT integrator, you have to understand where these holes are and what you can do to protect a customer from that,” he says.
To build your skill set, Chan recommends taking university/online courses, participating in industry-specific and vendor training, attending conferences, and gaining certifications.
Because security is a broad topic, Chan suggests developing general competency first, and then honing in on strategic specializations.
