IoT General

The increasing prevalence of the Internet of Things (IoT) in modern society presents significant opportunities for individuals, companies and states to have more control over their technology, and greater access to information, than ever before. Yet, the approach to safeguarding against the threat of cybersecurity is lagging behind the rate of development, according to a new report released today by Telefónica, one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world.
Entitled ‘Scope, scale and risk like never before: Securing the Internet of Things’, the report finds that the almost infinite benefits of IoT in a hyper-connected society must be counterbalanced by caution to avoid the catastrophic risks posed by cyberattacks.
