The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors and actuators that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.
There are many IoT devices around. It can be from an everyday object like your toaster, a car with entertainment system or a personal gadget like your smartphone or wristwatch.
The first line of defence is to be aware that this type of vulnerability exists. The next step would be to ensure that the IoT device has a firewall enabled, and that the password for this firewall is strong.
