What Being “Plugged In” Really Looks Like

There are times when a picture is worth a thousand words. Right now, there’s a buzz-phrase going around big-time: The Internet of Things. Why? Because we keep building devices, large and small, that speak to each other using the Internet: phones, printers, fridges, televisions, cars, game systems, thermostats. To name but a few. This terrific diagram explains how our growing world of connections works, and shows what matters to you, the user. Makes sense now, doesn’t it? And with that understanding comes knowledge, your proverbial ounce of prevention. Because malware shouldn’t come free with any purchase.

My thanks to the clever folks at TrendMicro for sharing.
