No doubt about it — we live in an internet-connected world. Our mobile phones and tablets serve as jukeboxes, video arcades, personal assistants and encyclopedias, and we can get an answer to almost any question by simply saying, “Hey Siri” (or “Hey Alexa” or “Hey Genie”). It is indeed a Golden Age of technology, whether we like it or not.

It does not stop there. Over the last five years, the “Internet of Things” (or IoT—the term used to describe the ever-growing collection of physical objects connected to the Internet) has grown substantially. We have more “smart” devices in our homes, offices, cars, and on our persons, and these IoT devices can do everything from regulating the temperature in the bedroom to helping us avoid local traffic jams to letting us know we’re out of beets (we must remember to somehow disable that last function).
