Within the last few years the number of devices connected to the Internet exceeded the number of people on the planet some estimates placing the figure at over 10 billion Internet-connected objects. In coming years a growing number of things—food, furniture, livestock, buildings, clothing, medical devices and even entire cities—will be increasingly interconnected. While the Internet of Things (IoT) brings great convenience to daily life it is also creating significant and little explored security vulnerabilities that need to be carefully considered. As more devices and sensors get connected, we will see changes in business models across numerous sectors, precision marketing and advertising, and homes that are connected and automated. Companies, organizations and individuals need to begin preparing now for new vulnerabilities and threats resulting from the expansion of the interconnectivity that is at IoT’s core. As the number of networked objects grows exponentially, so too will data transmission and storage methods as well as the number of threats. Organizations of all types will need to understand threats not only to their own networks but also to other networks as interdependencies increase.
