In recent years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has vastly changed the way we view, use and interact with smart devices, especially in the business world. Internet-connected virtual assistants, appliances, security systems and more can all communicate and coordinate with each other, allowing business owners to automate and streamline mundane, time-consuming activities.

Anything that’s connected to the internet has the potential to be hacked and misused. This is especially unsettling considering the amount of personal data IoT devices collect and use.

Members of Young Entrepreneur Council discussed their top security concerns related to IoT, as well as how they’re protecting their businesses and customers.
