As innovation is exploding with every passing year, every wave of technological progress is transforming our world into a smart and connected cyber-physical place. Today, billions of sensors and devices are being made even smarter by artificial intelligence in the cloud. In this wave of connecting devices, IoT has played an important role. IoT is not only about embedded devices but it also comprises an ecosystem of system integration, device hardware, connectivity, security, IoT platform providers, data storage, and application development.
Currently, there are more IoT devices connected to different networks than human beings on this planet. These IoT devices carry out sensitive data through the networks which remain insecure mainly due to the lack of reliable security standards that can be implemented.
IoT devices are directly connected to the internet and therefore are an easy target for manipulation. Cyberattackers can use any vulnerability in this system to disrupt the functionality of your organization. These attacks can either lead to a network being non-functional or being used as a path to reach the mainframe.
