Hackers new target: IoT

Yes. IoT devices can cause many problems for your business.

Even if you scan the "whole" network for breaches, you probably didn't know that hackers can still access your Thermostats, your card scanners, your CCTV anything that is connected wirelessly that you don't realise could be infiltrated 

They could be watching your every move without you knowing about it.


Why those devices

 500 billion devices are expected to be connected to the Internet by 2030. Each device includes sensors that collect data,
interact with the environment, and communicate over a network. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of these connected devices.
These smart, connected devices generate data that IoT applications use to aggregate, analyze, and deliver insight, which helps drive more
informed decisions and actions.
The IoT is a critical part of business strategies going forward. Based on an IDC study of 2300 executives in 15 countries, 48% of those
surveyed have already deployed IoT solutions, and 58 % said that the IoT is strategic to their business strategy
