Gartner, the American research and advisory firm for the Information Technology (IT) sector recently predicted that over 25% of all recognised attacks in organisations will come from the internet of things by 2020.
Ifsec global published a survey about Smart Buildings, targeting building managers and security professionals, their findings were:
– 87% of recipients were somewhat concerned about the vulnerabilities posed by smart tech
– 43% of recipients were very concerned about the vulnerabilities posed by smart tech
– 13% of recipients were not concerned at all
The growth and popularity of smart buildings is increasing year on year, some would say it is alarming that some responders had no concerns at all regarding the vulnerabilities posed by smart buildings and internet connected ‘things’.
