What’s In the Report

In this third decade of the 21st century, connected devices – often called the Internet of Things (IoT) – are proliferating throughout the world. It is estimated that 35 billion IoT devices have been installed around the world. IoT devices exchange information with each other and with other systems without human intervention. Such devices range from stand-alone appliances and smart phones, to devices worn as clothing or personal accessories. IoT devices can be contained in vehicles, buildings, and public spaces as Smart City technologies evolve and are integrated into existing infrastructure communication networks. Emerging and wide-ranging uses for IoT devices may enhance our quality of life, but when not properly secured against cyber-attacks they create vulnerabilities and opportunities for bad actors with malicious intent.
