Be they individuals or hostile nations, the Dark Reading blog advises, the threat is real. “We’re developing smart cars and smart cities. and it’s all connected to the Internet – the Internet of Things.

“But with this progress comes a pitfall: the opportunity for nation-state hackers to beat even our best cybersecurity systems and steal everything from source code to aeronautical blueprints, and have the ability to damage into the physical world as never before.”
