There has been plenty of buzz recently about the Internet of Things (IoT), which is defined as any device that can wirelessly connect to the Internet. This includes products like cell phones, Amazon Dash buttons (to order a product from Amazon before you run out), smart lightbulbs, watches, key trackers, and much more. The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly growing, and by 2020 it is projected to exceed 40 billion wireless devices.
IoT devices are popular because they’re easy to use — but they’re even easier to hack. Equipped with limited security features, IoT devices are an easy venue for hackers looking for a way in.
