Back in January I wrote a post on IoT and the year ahead. I suspect the past few weeks’ activities have given IoT somewhat more press than my humble ramblings.

The advent of new IT environments and cloud adoption has brought about the new challenge of how to defend it from potential threats and malicious use.
