Infographic: How Broad is Your Organization’s Attack Surface?

The rapid development and proliferation of inexpensive technology, and especially technology related to devices that connect to the Internet of Things (IoT), has been a blessing and a curse. The ability for security professionals to tap into the IoT to implement mobile access controls or wireless surveillance technologies, for example, has proven beneficial to most organizations. But for every beneficial, secure technology, there are dozens of less secure devices such as smart coffee makers that make their way into the office and onto the network. Add in every connected device carried by your organization’s employees and visitors and you can get a sense of how easily an attack surface can grow. This infographic from Trend Micro takes a look at IoT vulnerabilities and who is targeting them.
