Senator Mark Warner seeks industry-led security standards for IoT devices

In wake of the recent distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack, U.S. Sen. Mark Warner has sought industry-led security standards for IoT devices, before some form of government regulation takes place.

Sen. Warner, a Democrat from Va., announced recently that he would favor an industry-based approach before seeking some kind of government regulation of IoT security.
