The internet of things (IoT) has risen as one solution to the demands that have emerged because of the worldwide pandemic. The IoT, with its key characteristic of minimizing human interaction in performing a myriad of functions, seems a perfect fit in a world of remote setups and social distancing. But it is thanks to cloud computing that enterprises can smoothly make large-scale deployments of the IoT.
The integration of the IoT and cloud computing — as prominently manifested in the profusion of cloud services that power the IoT, collectively known as the IoT cloud — poses a new frontier for how industries are run. It is thus important not to overlook their respective security risks and the implications of these risks when the two technologies converge.
