Not a day passes without mention of the Internet of Things in the media, as it appears to expand exponentially. Roughly 6.4 billion things will be connected to the Internet in 2016, at a rate of 5.5 million new things per day, according to Gartner. More than 20 billion devices will be in use by 2020. As a result, everyone must be more cognizant of cyber-risks, including risks to businesses; utilities; heating, HVAC systems; autos; and homes. The IoT is at risk of being ensnared in a tangled web of legal and security issues.
