How safe is Your Data With the IoT and Smart Devices?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a growing phenomenon, and one that’s presenting us with a multitude of benefits. But with increased amounts of our data being shared online, it’s creating a number of security concerns, too.

In this data visualization, we’ll take a look at the number of devices that are connected around the world, including what data they’re collecting and where we can find them (e.g. in our homes, offices and vehicles). It will then explore how people feel about all of this data being shared and whether they’re happy with certain aspects of their lives being stored online (such as their health data and their shopping habits).

Finally, we’ll delve into what security risks are being posed by all these connected devices, and how we can make sure our data is protected in the future. There’s also some interesting stats on how much money will be spent on internet security over the coming years. This demonstrates the sheer importance of putting the right measures in place to make sure our data is as safe as possible.
