The Internet has become a tool for managing people’s offline reality
The Internet has lost its primary meaning and functions due to the close merger with various household appliances.
With the advent of the Internet of things, the world wide web is no longer just a means of communication and storage of information. It has become a powerful tool for managing people’s offline reality.
Stop. All previous Internet – related activities should be reviewed. Legislation, rules of conduct and regulation, methods of protection and directions of development… Absolutely everything.
However, this is unlikely to be done. After all, the realization of how different the Internet of things is from the old and good Internet has not yet occurred to people.
They are passionate about new IoT toys, so far they can only state the changed reality, focusing on individual facts.
For example, NordVPN reports that children’s toys, housing and utilities systems, medical equipment, and even sex toys have been hacked over the Internet.
All these cases are included in the “list of the craziest vulnerabilities and hacks of IoT devices”.
However, in General, it is worth going a little further in the conclusions and recognizing that it would be crazy to let the situation take its course without radically changing your attitude to the Internet of things.
