Cybersecurity and data protection challenges in the Internet of Things

The Cyberwatching.eu team written this report, presenting the results of the analysis of the risk and recommendations on cybersecurity services from different angles, which include an update on the challenges of emerging technologies, in particular, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) thereby resulting in a set of key recommendations covering the cybersecurity services landscape.


While the opportunities created for society and, in particular, the economy of having an ecosystem of interconnected services and devices are considerable, the amount of data (including personal data) required by IoT devices/services – collected through a variety of sensors – is both large and intrinsically intrusive for the individuals concerned.1 Considering that the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) has identified IoT as a technology which is “at the core of operations for many Operators of Essential Services […] especially considering recent initiatives towards Smart Infrastructures, Industry 4.0, 5G, Smart Grids”,2 ensuring that appropriate security measures can be defined for IoT systems is a matter of particular concern.

Maybe the SMS seemed a bit off, and you might have wondered whether you should click the link or not. But you wanted to know where your parcel is or who left a message, so you went on and clicked it anyway.
