In an ever increasing world of connectivity the rise of The Internet of Things has sparked questions around security.
More and more devices are being connected to the internet and smart homes are becoming more and more common place. I'm sure many people ready this will have a smart device of some kind that is connected to the internet. There is no question that this is an exciting time for technology, and the lives we lead have been undoubtedly changed by IoT, mostly for the better in my opinion.
But is the question of security really as big as it is being made out out to be?
Many blogs and news articles are happy to point out all of the weak points in the security of IoT but how realistic is it to think that a home would come under cyber attack?
People are concerned about their homes being hacked and businesses preciously guard all data and information behind complex and expensive encryption software, but is it all really necessary? Is IoT security more of an issue when it comes to businesses or are home networks just as much at threat?
We'd love to hear your thoughts on IoT security and if it is, in fact, a real threat or a non-issue.
