The Internet of Things (IoT) is opening up huge new opportunities to connect information and processes from end to end – enabling people to challenge a whole range of assumptions about how the world works. But it also brings a huge new array of risks – from technical issues of scale and security up to fundamental issues of business model disruption. So how can we make sure we approach the opportunities of the IoT in a way which makes us winners in the new hyperconnected age?
