Cyber Security

The Internet of Things

What do the following have in common? Toasters, kettles, refrigerators… Well, they’re all found in the kitchen, that’s true. But they are all commonly becoming part of the Internet of Things (IoT). To put it simply, these devices and thousands of others are being fitted with sensors that allow them to talk to each other. Why? Actually, there are loads of benefits. Want a cuppa? Turn on the kettle from your smartphone. Connect your fridge to your shopping list and auto-order milk when you’re getting low. All these features have their uses, but BEWARE! They can also be exploited by cybercriminals…

Learning outcomes:
  • Define the Internet of Things and what types of items count
  • Identify uses for the IoT so you can make informed decisions on whether to use it
  • Implement security measures to protect yourself against IoT hacks
