The Internet of Things and the Vulnerabilities It’s Causing
While the Internet of Things (IoT) has merged the physical world with the digital world to increase convenience and efficiency, hackers have also taken the initiative to exploit its vulnerabilities, often caused by the third-rate design of some connective devices.
Door locks, thermostats, refrigerators, security systems, cameras, and printers are among the IoT devices that have been hacked. In 2017, the increasing exploitation of IoT devices will underline the importance of developing comprehensive security policies and doing whatever it takes to ensure the operation and function of these devices is safe.
According to Forbes Magazine, by 2020, the number of interconnected IoT objects and smarts devices will exceed 50 billion. Consumers – and businesses – can’t wait to get their hands on the latest technology.
While the Internet of Things is still in its infancy, it is expanding at a rapid pace, and the evolution of security to meet that need will need to as well.
