AT&T Cybersecurity Insights Report 2016 – The CEO’s Guide to Securing the Internet of Things – Exploring IoT Security
ATT defines the Internet of Things (IoT) as the digitization of elements of the physical world, in which products and other “things” are outfitted with intelligent sensors and tags that let them communicate across the Internet without human intervention.
The rapid rise of a new generation of connected, intelligent devices – collectively known as the Internet of Things or IoT – is more than just the latest digital disruption to impact businesses of all sizes. The IoT presents vast opportunities for organizations to improve internal efficiencies, serve customers better, enter new markets, and even build new business models.
More IoT devices are coming online each and every day. Through connected devices, health care is improving patient care; for example, a diabetic patient’s blood sugar level can now be monitored remotely, enabling a quick response to a possible life-threatening situation.
The way we drive is also being transformed with advances that enhance safety through features such as hands-free communication or automated response to potentially dangerous situations. For industry and manufacturing, connected devices are being used to create more efficient, productive systems that can track shipments of grain across oceans or monitor oil well pumps, among other capabilities. Even if you are not utilizing the IoT today, you soon will be – and your suppliers and customers will be as well.
