CSR Advisory document ‘Towards a safe, connected, digital society’ – CSR Advisory document 2017, No. 3

The technical and economic opportunities presented by the Internet of Things (IoT) go hand in hand with digital threats to economic growth, security and freedom. This is why the Cyber Security Council (CSR) commissioned the Research and Documentation Centre (Wetenschappelijk Onderzoeks-en Documentatiecentrum, WODC) to conduct exploratory research. This research revealed that the IoT could have far-reaching consequences if measures are not taken. Currently, IoT applications are often poorly secured and therefore form a threat to our security and privacy.
