Security on the Internet of Things: An ESRM Perspective

IT Security Council, 2018

According to the paper, “The uses of the IoT to build this Smart World are convenient and bring a new level of mobile management to every aspect of consumer and business activities. However, the IoT brings with it, not just convenient access for users of the things, but also convenient access for those wanting to exploit those things. More access points provide more opportunities for attackers to get in. More communication provides more online traffic to siphon information from. More control provides more ability to hijack that control.”
