The "Internet of Things", also known as the "IoT". A made up marketing buzzword now used to refer to anything and everything that can connect to the Internet, or at least a local network, that isn't a traditional computer or mobile device. But as dreamy as the idea of being able to command your entire home, as well as your car, with just a few taps on your smartphone or smartwatch, this new trend in consumer electronics does come with some risks. As IoT brings these devices right into our homes and deeper into our lives, they also pose bigger threats to our privacy and security. Because try as we might, the Internet of Things will never be truly and absolutely secure. But that's also alright, because no connected device really is.
