Internet of Things in Cybersecurity: The Future and Risks

The number of interconnected IoT devices is increasing rapidly. It is estimated that by 2025 alone around 30.7 billion devices will be interconnected with a potential of IoT investment of over $ 3.7 (Columbus, 2016). This means that more and more people are becoming reliant on the IoT infrastructure to support their daily activities. However, the expansion of the IoT infrastructure has come with its own risks and vulnerabilities which manifests as cyberattacks with serious economic and social consequences. Reports of cyberattacks on individuals and businesses is on the rise with loss of privacy for individuals and loss of income for business (Rose, Eldridge, & Chapin, 2015). The aim of this paper is to outline the architecture of the IoT and discuss its vulnerability and risks. Additionally, the paper will discuss the viable cybersecurity measures that will make IoT a safer platform to share information.
