For the purposes of this article, you can think of the IoT as the global network of “things” that are connected to the internet. This includes the obvious things (e.g., smartphones, computers, wearables, etc.) and the less obvious (e.g., A.I. devices, office automation, coffeepots, smart TVs, etc.).
If you work in technology, you should be aware of the IoT, as it is certainly a trendy topic. As a trendy and often misunderstood arena, the IoT has not historically been discussed in-depth during security awareness training. This means that even if you are aware of the dangers presented by the IoT, your employees may not be as mindful.
