So what are the security concerns with IoT devices? IoT devices can pose a loop hole, an avenue, for the hackers to penetrate and access office computer systems and devices. If hypothetically for example, a hacker is able to hack into your FitBit, which is connected to your phone or computer, the hacker will have access to your cell phone and/or computer.
IoT provide just one more surface for the hackers and malware to eat into, corrupt, and exploit your information.
As always the answer is not to run from technology. Technology enhances our lives. The trick is to know the risks, train staff about the risks, and put policies and procedures in place to safeguard against the risks.
