If you’ve been following the news, the Internet of Things is getting increasing attention. You’re probably also thinking this is some Silicon Valley fancy thing that will take years to reach the rest of us.
Not really. You probably already have some items of your own tied into the Internet of Things.
First of all, what is the I of T? Simply, it is any object that collects data about itself or its surroundings, and then transfers that data across a network to some other object, which can then make use of that data. For example, if you have a baby monitor that sends crib pictures from upstairs to your phone, you’re tied into the I of T.
But what about business people? Where is it showing up in the workplace? You may have security cameras tied to a network where they can be monitored by a PC or phone. A front door lock that can be remotely opened via phone. A thermostat that can changed by the same phone. Internal lights that go on when you phone approach. All of these are part of the Internet of Things.

If you have questions about whether being tied into I of T presents a data security issue or hacking threat, you should contact a security consultant to discuss these issues. Headlines are now appearing about hacking into the I of T for nefarious purposes. It is a good idea to stay ahead of the curve because as a business, data security is a revenue-critical issue. Seriously, you don’t want the front door telling someone your client’s private data.

    Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
    It will always be helpful to read articles from other writers and use
    something from their web sites.

    Greetings from Idaho! I'm bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I really like the information you provide here and can't wait to take a
    look when I get home. I'm surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone
    .. I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, amazing blog!
