Re: Security
@vnewman: That's a terrific way of looking at it.  Far too many organizations practice M&M security -- hard on the outside, soft in the middle.  There have to be layers, there have to be what-ifs, there have to be contingencies.

Re: The concern with security
@Alison:

re: "it will get more challenging for hackers to mimic us,"

The problem is that once they succeed (they will succeed), that's yet more personal, more damaging data that they've compromised (e.g., biometrics).

Re: The concern with security
Good point!

I think that teaching people about cyber hacking and educating them about things like that has no difference whether they later become some huge hacker or not. I think if someone wants to know how to hack and becomes interested in doing things like that then they're going to do it reguardless.

Re: Security
Yes, absolutely!

It's always great to have a plan B. The initial plan, obviously, is to have no one be able to hack into any device, but it can happen. When it does happen, it's important for that person not to be able to put that information out into the world. People need to act quickly.

Re: Security
At our company, our we handle a lot of people's personal indentifying information and our manta is - it's not if, but when someone gets in, we have to keep them from getting out with the data.

Re: The concern with security
@faryl: You are absolutely right.

Connecting  devices via bluetooth / use of computer systems in cars have become kind of bare minimum requirement at this smart age. I recall hearing in news there were occurances where couple of major company cars getting a very poor rateing (or evn degraded?) by consumers. The only reason was - those cars lack smartability features as compared to others. The cars were absolutely fine at the core. So that explains where it is heading to.

Re: The concern with security
That's a great point, John. We keep acting and thiknkng as if everything around us will stay the same - other than hackers will get smarter. What's also true is that IoT will become smarter and it will get more challenging for hackers to mimic us, far beyond today's fingerprint or iris scans. With that in mind, the pictures of future IoT security solutions are rosier.

Re: The concern with security
@faryl: Reminds me of The Net coming out more than 20 years ago (that Sandra Bullock film), in which EVERYTHING was hackable.  My best friend and I laughed our butts off at how ridiculous that movie was (in 1995, mind you).

Now, it's not so far-fetched at all.
