Diverse forms of cyber security techniques are at the forefront of triggering digital security innovations, whereas cybersecurity has become one of the key areas of the internet of things (IoT). The IoT cybersecurity mitigates cybersecurity risk for organizations and users through tools such as blockchain, intelligent logistics, and smart home management. Literature has not provided the main streams of IoT cyber risk management trends, to cross referencing the diverse sectors involved of health, education, business, and energy, for example. This study aims to understanding the interplay between IoT cyber security and those distinct sector issues. It aims at identifying research trends in the field through a systematic bibliometric literature review (LRSB) of research on IoT cyber and security. The results were synthesized across current research subthemes. The results were synthesized across subthemes. The originality of the paper relies on its LRSB method, together with extant review of articles that have not been categorized so far. Implications for future research are suggested.

Methodological Approach

Systematic Bibliometric Literature Review (LRSB) is a research methodology that enables researchers to offer comprehensive maps of the knowledge structure in various literature streams. Bibliometric reviews use statistical tools to identify trends, citations, and co-citations indicated in themes, authors, year, method, research problem, theory, journal, and country (Paul & Criado, 2020). In this research paper, the technique integrates systematic literature review techniques and bibliometric analysis to increase the accuracy of the literature analysis (Rosário, 2021, Raimundo & Rosário, 2021, Rosário et al., 2021, Rosário & Cruz, 2019). The process began with the search of a broad search query in the Scopus database, as it is recognized as one of the main indexes of scientific and/or academic documents reviewed by peer-reviewed.

The LRSB methodology used in this document has created valuable work providing vital information for business professionals and academics (Table 1).
