Should We Worry About the IoT Being Used as a Weapon of Mass Control?

IoT Danger

A WHO report shows that 35% of women, worldwide, have experienced violence, and 39% of women were murdered at the hands of their partner. These figures are frightening, and as a woman who has experienced this type of violence, I know how easily it can happen. However, what I want to explore here is the role that technology, specifically connected systems termed under the banner of the “Internet of Things (IoT)” have on domestic violence and abuse?

Before I begin, we need to look at what the word ‘violence’ means. Firstly, violence can be both physical and non-physical. It is an aggressive act, performed using methods that can be psychological, sexual, emotional or economic. I gave figures above showing violence against women, but of course, men experience violence too – including domestic. However, technology may add a particular slant to violent and controlling acts – offering a reach to the abuser that they may otherwise not have.
