Surge in IoT Devices Lures More Cyberattacks


The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with an explosion in the number of connected devices, have led to a swelling in IoT infections observed on wireless networks. IoT devices are now responsible for 32.72 percent of all infections observed in mobile and Wi-Fi networks, and this will continue to grow “dramatically” as connected devices continue to populate in homes and enterprise settings alike, according to Nokia’s Threat Intelligence Report 2020. 

There are more and more devices for cybercriminals to scan and IoT devices are even a target for ransomware. This is no surprise since IoT devices have long been under scrutiny for their lack of security measures.
