Cyber threats to IoT in 2020

A burglar looks for the weak point in a home to exploit. An unlocked backdoor, open window, or even one that can be easily and quietly smashed without alerting anyone. This is as true today as it was one hundred years ago – the more vulnerable a target, the higher chance of being attacked and the higher chance of the owner becoming a victim. Hackers have the same mindset - identify a weakness in the system, exploit, rinse and repeat. Until very recently this meant a limited number of vulnerable points of access – computers were protected by anti-virus software, and modems had complex inbuilt security measures. But as technology has advanced, and additional connected devices are being added, the “attack surface” has continued to expand.
