What are the security considerations when implementing IoT devices and networks?

IoT stands for the Internet of Things, which refers to a network of interconnected devices that can communicate and exchange data with each other over the internet. IoT devices are physical objects embedded with sensors, actuators, and other technologies that enable them to collect and exchange data with other devices and systems.

These devices can range from simple household appliances like smart thermostats and light bulbs to more complex industrial machinery and medical devices.
