A new survey by Gemalto indicates that 96% of enterprises and 90% of consumers lack confidence in the security of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The majority of 1,050 IT and business decision-makers and over 10,500 consumer respondents favour more government regulations to protect data across the IoT ecosystem.
Wherever you turn in the consumer, business, technology or government worlds, the Internet of things (IoT) is the hottest of all topics.
Whether the conversation is about clothes or medical devices, robots or bicycles, cloud computing or mobile wearables, travelling the world or staying home, the public or the private sector, rural communities or the world’s largest cities, everything is trying to become “smarter.”
People and organizations now demand constant connectivity with machine learning to make sense of the volumes of data providing better overall business value, effective customer service and perfected lifestyle outcomes. Even global cities are vying to be the top “smart city” in Europe or in or in the entire world.
