Bryan Lillie, Head of Cyber Security at QinetiQ :

“Anyone can be hacked, it’s not just banks and governments and we all need to treat security seriously. IoT, which includes including many devices which monitor and collect personal information, creates huge amounts of valuable data which represents a new target for hackers, blackmailers, competitors and critics. The more that data become critical to your operation, the more seriously you need to take it. Sports team may not seem like the traditional target of hackers, but if you have valuable data, you will be a target for someone.”
