Internet of Things (IoT)
The Internet of Things has unlimited possibilities for home and business use. Appliances from refrigerators to sensor networks are now available in models that interact with a wireless network, making them easier to control with a computer or smartphone. Estimates suggest that there will be more than 75 billion IoT devices in use by 2025, according to IHS Markit.
Along with this massive market adoption of IoT, though, comes a trove of security concerns that necessitate attention and action. The National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) is striving to make IoT more secure.
