The Internet of Things (IoT) has introduced numerous innovations into our daily lives. According to the World Economic Forum (2015), the number of objects connected to IoT devices will reach 50.1 million by 2020. This figure is expected to rise to 28.4 million in 2017, 34.8 million in 2018, and 42.1m in 2019.
The internet of things (IoT), which has grown and spread in recent years, has introduced numerous innovations into our daily lives. The Internet of Things continues to enter our lives daily, from the automotive to the white goods sectors, from airplanes to various computer systems. According to the World Economic Forum (2015), the number of objects connected to IoT devices will reach 50.1 million by 2020. This figure is expected to rise to 28.4 million in 2017, 34.8 million in 2018, and 42.1 million in 2019.
As shown in the table above, the use of IoT devices is spreading in various areas day by day, and this spread is becoming increasingly intense. However, increased automation and digitalization have resulted in new security vulnerabilities. Naturally, it is debatable whether these objects, which are connected to the Internet and store very important personal information, will have a significant impact on the physical environment of the users, causing the users to distrust IoT devices.
Communication between IoT devices and cloud-based applications or infrastructure is one of the security concerns. The smart water meter, for example, can display the size of a specific household as well as the daily activity model. Furthermore, as with various car models where the IoT is active, many aircraft and jet-model security flaws can lead to out-of-control cyber attacks.
We can see that IoT devices are rapidly growing and spreading. IoT devices can include any type of physical device or machine that can share information, process analytical operations, and utilize the machine and network cloud features.
IoT devices have enabled new services or functions in many industries, as well as in many areas of society and some consumers’ daily lives. In our daily lives, the increased use of IoT devices connects the network and all objects to make the internet ecosystem safe for all. Awareness and proper training are probably the most effective defensive lines of all smart device owners in this context, and they are critical in teaching how to implement basic safety precautions.
With the use of phishing tests, employees will learn to identify phishing attempts and their variations and report them properly. You will also be used to assess the success of security training programs and find weak points. The Phishing Simulation module is fully connected with our Awareness Educator so that it can automatically place employees who fall victim to our phishing simulations on the proper e-learning courses to increase their awareness of real phishing attempts.
Keepnet Labs Phishing Simulation focuses on issues that many sectors are now dealing with, and we offer a thorough analysis of how Keepnet Labs security awareness modules have protected your system.
The human factor is the weakest point in your security posture and may be used against you regardless of how secure your network, computers, and software are. Traditional security measures are insufficient to stop these attacks. Using phishing test platforms that replicate phishing attacks is an effective security measure.
Phishing is one of the most successful ways cybercriminals access companies' passwords and other security credentials. A cybercriminal impersonates a legitimate person or entity and sends a fake email to manipulate employees. Companies need to train their employees not to click on links or attachments in suspicious emails.
Keyloggers are one of the most common and deadly cybersecurity threats. It is a type of malware that records keystrokes and sends them back to the cybercriminal. Hackers can access accounts, banking systems, or even bitcoin wallets thanks to keyloggers.
