What You Need To know About IoT and Cyber Security

Convergence of multiple technologies from the industrial and information technology worlds has resulted in what is commonly known as the Internet of Things or IoT. IoT combines concepts from embedded systems, networking, sensors, control systems, data analytics and artificial intelligence. IoT technology is being used not only in industrial applications but also in everyday consumer/household applications. It is estimated that there will be 25 billion connected devices by 2021, thereby transforming the way we live and work. Current estimates of data output from IoT are around 2.5 quintillion bytes daily. With the growth in the number of IoT devices, network complexity and data will also grow creating vulnerabilities and presenting greater opportunities to attackers. Thus, there will be higher risks associated with device, network and data security.
