IoT devices vulnerable to all kinds of cyberattack. This is because there was a rush to ship them and make them available for consumers. They are generally inexpensive and mass produced.
Attack surface areas explode with risk. In today’s world, we are surrounded by a lot of devices that are connected to the internet, which means that there are more devices for hackers to use to get into our networks. This can lead to a significant increase in risk for your company’s reputation and assets. The other thing to consider is that devices are becoming more intelligent. For example, voice-activated systems like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home can either be a pro or con depending on the organization.
It is important to know the basics of how your phone works and what you can do to protect it. Some of the key advice is to: Update your software, use a password and update it regularly as well as use two-factor and multifactor authentication when available, and use an antivirus program (the more up-to-date the better) to protect against malware infections, viruses, and phishing attacks.
