5 Ways the Internet of Things is Changing the Game for Education and Learning

Article | March 27, 2020

There’s been so much buzz about the Internet of Things (IoT) in the past couple of years. For today’s youngsters, the day will come when a computer is no longer seen as a separate object or device.

Statista, for example, estimates the device count for 2020 to be more than 30 billion. Security remains a big challenge for IoT as a strategy to be successful. IoT devices are still not being designed with security as a top priority.Mary O’Neill, VP of security at Nokia, noted in a press conference at MWC Los Angeles 2019 and reported by SDXCentral, that “if an IoT device today is plugged into the network and it doesn’t have protection on it, it’s infected in three minutes or less.”Jake Williams, founder of the security firm Rendition Infosec, said that “IoT vendors emphasize, often rightly, that their products improve quality of life, but they often neglect to disclose the risk of these devices to consumers. The onus of understanding how an IoT device might impact security should not be purely on the consumer. The vendor shares this responsibility.
