Will the Internet of Things rewrite the rules on cyber security? | The Local

There’s been lots of hype about the benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT), but ignoring the risks that come with it could have disastrous consequences.

Not too long ago, the idea of communicating with your kitchen appliances or hopping in a self-driving car may have seemed like science fiction.

But the promise and potential that comes with connecting more gadgets online means that just about anything with an on/off switch can be connected to the internet and a remote controlling device over the same network.

By 2020, more than 50 billion devices are expected to be connected to the internet, meaning our world will become increasingly ‘smart’ as the Internet of Things (IoT) permeates into more parts of more people’s lives.
