Eugene Kaspersky is the founder of the Kaspersky Lab cybersecurity software company, and believes hackers will have plenty of opportunities when it comes to targeting connected Things.




"You call it Internet of things; I call it Internet of threats," Kaspersky recently said on NBC News. Kaspersky noted that hackers could be able to display messages on a smart TV, smartwatch and other connected devices, or be malicious and compromise personal information.


It's no secret that IoT is expected to be more disruptive, but cybersecurity experts are concerned. Even though more Things will be in our apartments and homes, consumers don't appear completely sold on the technology - so manufacturers will have to address that problem while also trying to improve security protocols.
