Will the IoT Be Secure? 3 Factors That Impact Security (Part 2 of 4)


Technology progress and the ongoing redefinitions of scope create a dynamic situation that forces us to constantly revisit current security measures. We don’t know what’s coming next and we can’t see the whole range of threats looming on the horizon. So how can we possibly know that we’re secure?

Despite how it may sound, there’s no need to despair. We all live our daily lives making reasonable assessments of how to stay out of trouble. This applies to the IoT as well.

And what’s happening today in technology also comes with great new opportunity. The IoT will enable us to collect more data, to know more, and to make better (“more qualified”) decisions faster. This new territory will improve the quality of our lives and create further prosperity. Of course, we do need to learn how to maneuver in this new world — and how to stay out of trouble. Progress isn’t free.
