Internet of Things
The internet isn’t just a web browser, an email address, or a social media feed. It’s also the Internet of Things (IoT), some 26 billion devices—everything from refrigerators to smart locks—and it’s estimated to grow to more than 75 billion devices by 2025. Needless to say, this has huge implications for cybersecurity, as all of these devices (and the sensitive data they’re transmitting) are potential targets for hackers.
How might we help people understand the scale of the challenge and what’s needed to protect society in the face of this explosive growth in IoT devices?
How should we think about what happens online increasingly leading to tangible, real-world impacts offline?
