The Internet of Things is The Next Big Security Nightmare

With all these benefits comes risk as this increase in connected devices gives hackers and cyber criminals more entry points.

The Internet of Things involves the increasing advances of objects and entities provided with the ability to automatically transfer data over a network. The “Internet of Things” is connecting more and more devices every single day. It is estimated that by 2020, the world will have 24 billion IOT devices. Devices and entities affected include power grids, vehicles, healthcare devices and appliances, just to name a few. But, with all these benefits comes risk as this increase in connected devices gives hackers and cyber criminals more entry points.
