Let’s skip the part where we talk about how many fancy IoT devices people will have in 5 years. We can also skip the part where we talk about the benefits of these devices.

 

Why is it that these connected devices are being hacked over and over again?

 

The list below, while not exhaustive, explains some of the reasons why these new connected devices are so easy to hack and why we’re likely to see more hacks in the future.

  1. MVP mindset
  2. Usability > security
  3. Lack of skills and resources
  4. Ship and forget mindset
  5. You (the user)
  6. Complex supply chain
  7. Cybercrime as a service
