Description of Startup:
With the increase of devices becoming ‘alive’ and connected to the internet whether it is a light bulb, HVAC system, SCADA unit, or medical device increases the risk of an organization becoming compromised. For an attacker if the device is connected to the internal/external network increases the risk of an organization being susceptible to a data breach and/or network compromise because these devices are being used as pivot points into the infrastructure.
