Is your conferencing system a cybersecurity weak link? Nov 14, 2017 Cloud Tweaks | Bobby Beckmann At home and in the office, the Internet of Things (IoT) has brought us new heights of connectivity and convenience. Yet recent years show that the connected devices that have opened up new doors for us have also exposed us to new vulnerabilities. A cloud of insecurity seems to be looming over the new age of efficiency that connected devices have created. When not properly secured, connected devices can be a weak link when it comes to cybersecurity, leaving devices and the data on them at risk. We have seen the real-world risks associated with IoT devices in action last year, when the Mirai botnet hijacked more than a million devices to interrupt major websites. But that is not the only threat at hand. In the workplace, the security of these devices should be of utmost importance, especially considering what is at stake. In the hands of the wrong people, access to these devices can grant intruders the ability to spy on employees or steal corporate information.
