"More than 28 billion connected devices exist worldwide, and that will grow to 50 billion by the end of the decade." - Scott Sowers, Business Researcher
As the Internet of things (IoT) has made our lives undeniably more manageable, skeptics question the security of data and private information. The progression of technology is moving at its fastest rate ever and the risk of complications will rise at the same pace.
Security initiatives have struggled to keep up with the IoT evidenced by over 3.5 billion personal records compromised since 2005. From baby monitors to thermostats to cars, the machine-to-machine communication network of data-gathering sensors has and repeatedly continues to be breached. This report, published by Business Researcher, delves further into each industry and breaks down the underlying causes and vulnerabilities IoT devices are experiencing.
