I am a journalist writing an article for a large uk-based publication that will look at the vulnerability of everyday objects that are now being built with technological and online capabilities; otherwise known as the 'internet of things'. The key to my piece is assessing what the most vulnerable internet of things technologies are in terms of exposing users to fraud (like identify theft, monitoring of their behaviour, accessing bank accounts where devices are linked to use-based spending, monitoring the geo-location of victims to make frauds more effective – say by email deception, understanding their consumer behaviour – again to make them targets for fraud attacks and scams, etc.). Would anyone have any knowledge on this topic and willing to speak with me?+5 Other Responses
