The Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding in size and complexity; there are some five billion connected devices in the world today and 50 billion IoT endpoints are expected to populate the planet by the year 2020.  But as connected devices proliferate, the attack surface grows larger.

This paper outlines potential security issues with the IoT and the need for the right security skills within your organization.
