The Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem has radically evolved in the last two decades, facilitated by the evolution of distributed network technologies. McKinsey estimates that by 2025, the world will own 50 billion networked devices, a 400 per cent increase on 2010, and creating $11 trillion in economic value. While this proliferation of networked technology over the last 20 years has created a myriad of opportunities for businesses, governments and developers to explore it has created new challenges to overcome.

With such rapid developments of IoT devices and technologies, threats and attacks are a clear and present danger for individuals as well as organisations all over the world.
