Below is an Internet of Things (IoT) infographic that highlights why security is essential for the growing IoT.
As you probably know, the number of connected devices is increasing every day. With over 7 billion people on earth, the impact of this increase will be gradual yet massive over the years.
Below is a complete overview of why security is so important for IoT connected devices. More devices mean more personal information stored in the cloud. More data in the cloud gives hackers more opportunities to access your personal information or use your network, or devices, for malicious purposes.
Security for IoT devices should be a forethought in the minds of anyone purchasing, developing, or using any forms of connected devices.
The good news is that it is very simple to keep your devices and network secure. It can be as easy as changing the default password, keeping the software up to date, and always password protecting your devices and network.
