IOT devices are more vulnerable to hack
IOT devices and Cyber Security goes hand in hand. Every day there is increase in devices which are being connected to internet. Development in the field of machine learning and artificial intelligence had increased dramatically due to increase of interconnected devices and growth of IOT devices in the aim to make the human life easy. IOT devices like smart cars which can auto drive and promise to take you safe to your destination, smart home appliances like refrigerator which can automatically add items to the glossary and vegetable list after checking the availability.

In the recent past cyber security researchers have shown how they can take control of the car and turn the steering wheel of car while the car is in highway on an average speed of 70 miles per hour.
These hacking incident attract media attention but media fails to illustrate how one can stay safe and how to mitigate these kind of risk. Hackers are more smarter and uses there black hat skills to get inside the corporate or government database by exploiting the IOT devices.

- Corporate and government espionage have increased along with data breaches as hackers could easily exploit the IOT devices.
- Investment in cyber security on IOT devices is expected to increase by 500% as the demand for these devices increases in coming 5 years.
- Demand for general cyber security services like Network Penetration Testing, Web Application Penetration Testing is going to be more complex due to introduction of IOT devices in corporate and government houses in coming future.
