If you have IoT devices in your home, or on your corporate network (or both), an IoT malware attack might have already happened to you. And if it has not happened, it almost certainly will. The truly frightening thing is that your devices might have already been attacked and compromised. And you might not even know. Article author J Steven Perry walks us through device anatomy, the attacks themselves, recent examples, and most importantly; How to protect ourselves!
Anatomy of an IoT malware attack - If you have IoT devices in your home, or on your corporate network (or both), they are under attack. They might have already been attacked and compromised. And you might not even know. In this article, I will address these three questions: What does an IoT device look like under the hood, what does an IoT malware attack look like, and what do you do to protect your IoT devices from attack?

There are quite a few ways to engage in extended learning in IBM and obtain both professional certifications as well as open badges recognizing your achievements and knowledge.
For professional certifications surrounding the Watson Internet of Things unit, check out IBM's Professional Certification Program here: http
You may also want to investigate the IBM Open Badge Certification Program here: http
The Certified badge is awarded to IT professionals who have successfully completed the requirements associated with selected solutions, selected advanced/expert certifications and to individuals who have made significant contribution to the development of IBM certification exams. This badge is typically associated with the learner who has achieved and demonstrated an exceptionally high level of understanding of the topic represented by the certification. All IBM certification credentials can be shared on Linkedin (Watch Now). When a certification is eligible for a badge, that badge can also be shared on social media.
Of course, you can also take a look at the IBM Skills Gateway and their use of the Open Badge system. What is an Open Badge? An open badge is a digital representation of an outcome or achievement. Open badges refer specifically to badges that adhere to an open standard being led by the Mozilla Foundation for recognizing and validating learning. They are secure, web-enabled credentials that contain granular, verified information employers can use to evaluate an individual’s potential.
IBM credentials are recognized, respected and valued globally in the IT industry, but communicating your credentials in today’s ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging. IBM has established this opportunity so you may easily and quickly share verified proof of your achievement wherever and whenever you choose. Where applicable, your IBM credentials will be represented by a digital image that contains verified metadata describing your qualifications and the rigorous process necessary to earn them.
You can use the Find a Badge link to search and locate the badges you're interested in (here's a hint, use the Filter drop list to select "Watson" for all the Watson and IoT related badges available): http
Lastly, there is a great Coursera program that will guide you through using the Watson IoT Platform on Bluemix, and once completed, you can receive a certificate: http
There is even a Cloud Application Developer course which covers IBM Bluemix as well: http
With so many options, we're certain you can find something that is just right for your own journey in the IoT world!
