Cybersecurity Predictions: I envision ransomware effectively targeting devices in homes in the next 5-10 years | Vumetric

I envision ransomware effectively targeting devices in homes in the next 5-10 years. Interactive speakers, IP cameras, and other internet-connected devices like thermostats and appliances, bring more convenience and comfort into consumers’ lives. We have already seen them also bring greater risks by giving cybercriminals new opportunities to access our information, and even launch attacks. Cybercriminals will focus on exploiting consumers through these devices as we see an increase in the volume of things going into homes with a lack of built-in security controls
