Nick Ismail: Preparing for an Internet of Things future: In blockchain we trust

There exists a paradox at the heart of the Internet of Things (IoT). While connected devices are expected to dominate every aspect of our lives in the coming years - and already outnumber humans in terms of a basic headcount - belief in the ecosystem’s security is still lacking, and has a long way to go before businesses and individuals fully invest in its potential

In a recent poll of IoT professionals, over half (54%) stated their concerns around current standards of IoT security. Take into account that 56% of these same professionals expect every single device around us to be voice-enabled within ten years, and you have a tension that’s only set to grow. Imagine just that; phones and cars, fridges and cameras, all connected to the internet – but the platform on which they operate lacks the robustness to protect our data.
