Cyber Security In The IoT Era
- Nov 20, 2018-
Consumers are increasingly embracing smart homes, equipped with multiple smart devices and sensors. By analysing usage data smart homes can provide personalised experience to intelligently predict and meet user needs. Meanwhile, connected home environment is also becoming attractive targets for attacks and illegal exploits, threatening consumers’ privacy as well as other critical information.
Different researches have recognised that the IoT market including smart homes will grow rapidly in the years to come. For example, Gartner predicted that the number IoT connections will reach 12 billion by the year 2020. It is also believed that wide-area especially cellular-based IoT will generate faster growth than the short-range based IoT networks. This trend will put network operators in a unique position to lead users to the next stage of the connected experience that is both private and secure.
