Success Path
Everything you need to implement IoT for remote monitoring

Define Compliance and Security Requirements

Compile any security and compliance requirements that you need to consider as you design and implement this new technology.   

Define compliance and regulatory requirements

Depending on your industry, there may be regulations or guidelines that impact your IoT project. These guidelines might require: 

  • Restrictions on what you’re able to do   
  • Mandates on things you have to do 

Meet with regulatory or quality assurance teams to understand any restrictions or mandates. Document the compliance and regulatory requirements you need to keep in mind throughout the project. Make sure that team members who will build the solution have access to these requirements. 

Define security requirements

Implementing IoT into your organization requires diligence around security. Your IoT solution requires security considerations for:

  • Your organization’s infrastructure  
  • The edge, including products, edge agents, connection servers, etc.  
  • ThingWorx authentication and applications  

Leaders of the teams who support these items should review our “ThingWorx Secure Deployment Guide.” Document any security requirements that need to be considered for this project.
