Computer hardware engineer Brian Stelter writes about how the Internet of Things (IoT) can help make cybersecurity more effective.
In a series of blog posts, Stelters points out that the IoT is now able to perform tasks such as monitoring and alerting users of threats to the public safety.
The IoT devices can also act as a “digital firewall” and “smart card” to help the public keep their personal information secure.
The Internet of things has also helped create an entire “digital black hole” in the cyber security industry, with cyber attackers getting around the technology in ways that are impossible to detect.
Stelters said the IoT technology has created “a kind of digital black hole,” which he described as the ability to “hack into anything” with the help of the Internet.
This is especially important in an age where cyber attacks are becoming more sophisticated.
“This new way of hacking is so fast and so powerful that we need to be able to see the whole picture in order to find out what’s going on,” he wrote.
In addition to his blog, Stelster has also appeared on the CBS News program Face the Nation.
His comments on cyber security were published in a blog post that was shared on Twitter and is also being shared on his Facebook page.
