Ally Marotti: Study: Rush to connect to Internet of Things could open security gaps

The rush by companies eager to incorporate the Internet of Things in their operations could introduce potential cybersecurity threats, according to a study released Monday.

Eight-five percent of businesses are exploring or implementing connected devices, but only 10 percent of companies surveyed are confident in the security of those devices, the AT&T study found. The study surveyed 500 companies around the world with at least 1,000 employees.
