Will devices know when and how to protect someone’s personal data? Today with the internet linking virtually everything together, this seems like the right question to ask. Answering the question though, in the midst of the IoT explosion, might not be so easy. With GDPR a reality now, and the IoT connecting millions of end points on a daily basis, some of the current trends could provide some helpful insight. Knowing which trends to look at is key.
The internet of things (IoT) is one of the most significant technological revolutions of our lifetime. It has the potential to transform almost every aspect of our lives and is also growing annually by 19.92 percent. The global IoT market is projected to be valued at $8.9 trillion by 2020.
The IoT is gaining more traction in 2018 than ever before. However, there is a complicating factor that IoT developers should be aware of – the GDPR. The GDPR has created a number of new security and privacy issues that will have an effect on the IoT. New devices need to be developed with the new GDPR standards in mind, along with other changes that the IoT has wrought.
Here are some exciting trends to look out for.
