CyberNB Case Study: Blue Spurs and the Internet of Things

IoT, Cybersecurity

We all interact with the Internet of Things (IoT) every day. Our kids interact with the IoT every day. Everything from our mobile phones to our smartwatches to the devices used to heat and cool our homes are connected to the IoT.

Despite connecting with it every day, many of us still don’t really know what it is.

Like cybersecurity, the IoT is one of the fastest-growing sectors of our economy. To put it in perspective, Ericsson has predicted that there will be 28 billion internet-connected devices by 2021. IoT is a natural tie-in with cybersecurity which makes this a perfect pairing for CyberNB.

Most importantly, it’s essential for our students to learn about IoT and the job possibilities it brings. To help students learn about its full potential Canadian-based Blue Spurs has created the Blue Kit, a creative, low-code product that teaches students about IoT.
