The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the network of interconnected devices, ranging from smart home appliances to industrial sensors, that communicate and exchange data over the internet. These devices are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies, enabling them to collect and exchange data with each other and with central systems.
Security in IoT is crucial due to the vast amount of sensitive data being transmitted and stored by these interconnected devices. Without adequate security measures, IoT devices are vulnerable to various cyber threats such as hacking, data breaches, and malware attacks. Ensuring the security of IoT systems involves implementing robust encryption protocols, authentication mechanisms, and access controls to protect data integrity and confidentiality. Additionally, continuous monitoring and updates are essential to detect and mitigate any security vulnerabilities that may arise in IoT devices and networks.

Sanja Maravić Čisar is coming from Subotica, Serbia and holds a PhD in Computer Science. She holds the position of college professor at Subotica Tech-College of Applied Sciences. At the undergraduate level, she teaches a range of courses including Algorithms and Data Structures, Multimedia Systems, Mobile Device Programming, Agile Development of Software Systems, and Integration of Information Technologies. She also teaches master’s degree students about Security and Privacy in the Internet of Things.
