The Term Internet of Things (IoT) Should Change

Many organizations are still thinking of IoT as simple consumer toys that do not impact them, but that is not the case. Early on I circled my wagons around explaining IoT from a security perspective and describing how to better examine and address the security of an IoT products ecosystem, no matter what we determined “IoT” to be. The main focus of this concept is that the security of any part of an IoT ecosystem can, and will, affect the security of all other parts of that ecosystem.
