Cybersecurity was predicted to be a hot topic in 2017 and that has proven to be true. With the many international cyberattacks from the WannaCry Virus to Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections, it’s clear that private information, computers, software, and IoT devices are not safe. Although we still embrace the Internet of Things, we do so with our eyes wide open.
Everything is turning smart. That’s a good thing, right? It’s creating better efficiency, a smarter approach to business, health, etc. But, like any technological advance, there’s a downside, and for IoT and that’s a decrease in security and privacy. Security isn’t keeping up as IoT advances.
