Privacy Issues in Internet of Things

IoT privacy

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to sensor-embedded physical devices connected to the internet that collect, analyze and share data. These may include household appliances such as clock, air conditioner, building features such as lighting and heating systems or personal wearable devices such as smartphones and smartwatches. 

The IoT technology has significantly improved our living standard, provided productivity and convenience to every daily live activity. Yet with all the massive amount of data they collected, from sensitive personal information to business decisions, the IoT has raised many concerns regarding security and privacy.   

Businesses’ IoT Privacy Concerns

Enterprises around the world have been increasingly implementing IoT in the form of smart office devices into their everyday operation, like automated doors and windows, heating and ventilation systems, smart speakers and cameras in meeting rooms hooked up to the corporate network. 

These can cause severe security issues as few companies are able to identify and control where all these devices are connected to. In a bad scenario, hackers may find a way to hack into these devices, then gain access to the company network and steal or leak important data.

That’s why it is extremely important that companies with IoT devices pay more attention to IT security, know and understand where your devices are plugged into and act fast to fix security flaws.
