Security issues with Internet of Things ("IoT") products

According to a study by eco ("Verband der Internetwirtschaft e.V." – "Association of the Internet Industry"), the German IoT market will generate revenues of around EUR 16.8 billion in 2022. This would mean a doubling within five years and a growth of around 19 % per year. Germany is among the world's largest industry 4.0 markets (especially in the automotive industry, but also in mechanical and plant engineering).

IoT devices often raise questions of liability and IT security, as well as questions of data protection. In recent years, IT security specialists showed how easily they can access some of those devices to gain control over them or infiltrate the  network the devices are connected to.
