We’ve experienced an explosion in automation, connection, intelligence, and possibilities when it comes to our information technology. From the way we store data in the cloud to being able to control functions of our homes with the tap of a mobile app, innovation and convenience have superseded security.

Connected devices on our wrists, in our living rooms, and helping improve the driving experience are the next frontier for hackers. With an estimated 6.4 billion devices already in circulation, we’re almost to the point where there’s an IoT device for every person on the planet. By 2020, devices will outnumber us by almost three-to-one.
