Internet of Things to Redefine Scope of IT Security


A recent report from Gartner is sounding the alarm about the burgeoning threat from IoT.
I've been riding this horse for a long time now. But recently, attacks on these systems are headlining the mainstream media: hijacked baby monitors, hijacked cars and drones, hacked medical devices, ...  Attacks are limited only by the imaginations of the hackers, which seems endless.

If you haven't investigated for yourself what IoT means for your enterprise and yourself, it's not too late to start.

We have some articles on IoT, M2M, NFC, RIFD, sensors, CPS, etc.
