Electronic Privacy: Anything you connect to the internet can [and will] be hacked.
Electronic privacy and security is a hot topic these days. It is not surprising as we trend toward plugging everything we have into the internet (our toasters too?). One of the industry’s biggest treasures these days is the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is a hugely popular and growing network of sensors and devices both public and ‘private’ all over the world. All of them having the potential and dangerous side effect of allowing anyone into your ‘business.’ Or perhaps worse, controlling your equipment to do their bidding.
When electronic security is brought up in conversation some favourite questions asked are, “How could a malicious ‘bad guy’ even find me?” or “Why would they have any interest in my stuff, to begin with?”
