The Internet of Things (IoT) is a term covering a broad array of Internet-connected devices adopted by both business entities and consumers. Unfortunately, this connection to the Internet also exposes these devices to connections from other devices on the Internet. In the current cybersecurity environment, this means that IoT devices are susceptible to all manner of cybersecurity threats. Thus, the adoption of IoT devices brings with it exposure to an array of cybersecurity risks. This paper attempts to develop a framework to analyze the nature of cybersecurity threats and the resulting risks faced by entities adopting IoT devices.
