Cybersecurity Risks in Complex IoT Environments

Att the moment I woud rank the probability of professional break in merchants having the IT skills ncessary to exploit the IoT gizmo flaws as very low.

Howver, when most of these IoT security gizmo merchants go bust, there may well be a surfeit of out of work IoT people whoi have the knowledge needed to turn to a life of crime. And due to the devices all needing personal info to be given to the supplier, they will possibly have useful lists of the installed user base to hand too.
