According to an April 2020 report from IoT Analytics, the IoT Security Market has faced an increase of cyberattacks in the early months of the COVID-19 crisis and has raised the importance of IoT security in light of the growing demand. Generally, securing an Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure requires a precise security-in-depth strategy to secure cloud data, protect data integrity, data devices, and more.
It’s important to ensure IoT security as IoT is a connected network of devices or appliances that comprise software that enables them to connect to the Internet. This means that not just computers and smartphones that get to expose your personal data to hackers but any device or system that interacts online has the potential to reveal personal information to cybercriminals.
The leaked information opens up wider opportunities for hackers to disable safety features and many more. Thus, it’s imperative to take up best practices for IoT security.
