3 reasons to be wary of the Internet of Things

IT and security experts discuss why companies and consumers alike should be careful about deploying ‘smart’ appliances and devices that connect to the Internet and offer steps to protect against security and privacy threats.

The amount of damage that can be done is way greater than today. Take a recent hack like the Sony Entertainment hack; it was, of course, devastating for the company, but it was still just information on their network, mostly historical data. Hacking the IoT world means access to real-time control of physical devices. How about turning off the breaks on a moving car, turning off the cooling system on a power plant or pulling the plug on an Air Control Tower? Or change the dose on an insulin pump? The amount of damage that can be done remotely will also open a new “market” for extortion and cyber warfare.

IoT will require a new level of security and privacy protection, simple enough for anyone to use, but hardened enough to make it impossible to break. Especially since most of these things will move around and communicate on public networks outside firewalls.
