The internet is becoming a basic utility. Many of us cannot live without it. It has created its own economy, the Internet of Things (IoT), connecting devices – smartphones, computers, cars and robots of all sorts – to improve our lives. These connected devices are expected to grow to 50 billion by 2020, opening a portal to cybercrimes, hackers, and data breaches. Every day the news media highlights a new data hack.
