According to Survey, IoT Use is Up While Trust is Down

According to Survey, IoT Use is Up While Trust is Down

While the Internet of Things has increased in use, that doesn’t mean that its users necessarily trust it just yet. Furthermore, many of these users aren’t fully aware of the actual extent that the IoT has in their lives. These results, from a recent survey by Cisco, could be pertinent to your business and how you manage it. With so many new devices connecting to your network, how can you expect them to affect operations?

Cisco’s survey covers 3,000 North American adults with at least some knowledge of IoT devices. As such, it provides a lot of great information about how businesses and consumers respond to the Internet of Things. Most consumers aren’t necessarily aware of just how far-reaching the Internet of Things can be, even if they use them on a regular basis. In fact, the Internet of Things includes devices that might not have traditionally benefited from a connection to the Internet. Some of these are car navigation systems, street lamps, security systems, and health-monitoring devices.

Most users knew about some of the more familiar and useful Internet of Things devices, but others were amazed by some of the more unusual IoT devices out there. Even though there are disparities in awareness, users generally responded positively to Internet-connected devices, provided they knowingly used them. 53 percent of users claimed that connected devices provided an easier way of life, while 47 percent found that their lives were more efficient with them. 34 percent of users also argue that Internet of Things devices have made them feel more secure.

However, the real kicker of this survey is that only 9 percent of respondents could say that they felt their data was more secure or private thanks to the Internet of Things. Furthermore, 14% of users felt that the way their data was being used wasn’t transparent enough for their liking, which is certainly a major concern. Even if the device helps you, you still have to worry whether or not it’s compromising your security.

Despite these suspicions, it’s likely that the Internet of Things is going to continue growing. Therefore, you must make sure that your company is taking IoT devices into account around your office. Implementing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy is the best way to make sure that your business is always aware of devices found on the company network. Implementing such a policy ensures that your business has a plan for personal devices in the workplace, and it can help to limit the damage done by them in the event of an incident.
