Re: Security in 2017
@clrmoney, I agree there is more risking when online than when offline or when used devices that are not connected online.

Re: Increased INOT Vulnerability
@dc I think you're right about that. Data security isn't as well understood as other tasks in everyday life. Perhaps a simulation is in order.

Re: Increased INOT Vulnerability
@elizabethv Well, I'm curious then what it's going to take to get people worried. 

Maybe at this point people are just numb to the idea of hacks. It's such an abstraction its hard to get people's attention.

Re: Increased INOT Vulnerability
@dcawrey - I believe you are referring to the hack of the DNC and Clinton's emails, and subsequent release to Wikileaks. (That's my guess anyway, I apoogize if that's incorrect.) But while one would think a hack of this nature would be of great interest to most users, my guess is that because of who was hacked, and the believed advantage some see in this hack, they just aren't that concerned. If they were more directly effected, negatively especially, they would probably not stop talking about the problem. But because of the number of people who believe this hack was good, and even necessary, it just isn't seen as a bad thing at all.

Re: Increased INOT Vulnerability
@dcawrey:

So we're going to see more IoT-based attacks? That's a scary thought.


I hear you, the thought is scary but not unreal. I think we all know that there has to be solution in terms of tight security model.

It would seem that even though there was a lot of media coverage about this year's hack that things would change. But sadly they have not. What's the solution here?

Re: Security in 2017
There is no question the need is there--I am well aware of on-going development at Universities.    But what I would humbly suggest is that there is only such much that can be done at the "vendor" level--Apple has been the best at it--but end users have to do their part both at the Enteprise level..and at the "end user/individual" level.   That's the key...

@mpouraryan:

'Wild Wild West' for cycber world is a perfect description.

Though end users have responsibility, i would say recent security hacking incidents are beyond that. It all narrows down to cloud security.

Re: Survey: The Big Security Story of 2017?
It is a grim picture--it seems as if those of us who are embracing iOT will continue to be at the mercy of  manufacturers not withstanding my advocacy for a sense of responsibility we all need to embrace as end users.    It appears that you are advising that not to be the case.   It is going to be an interesting 2017...

Re: Increased INOT Vulnerability
I have noted the Cyber World to be the "Wild Wild West".   There is no other way to describe it--and although i noted that we as end users have some level of responsibility, I do admit that there is only so much we can do.    Yahoo happened a number of years ago--and the extent of the breach is now coming to light--but I still think Yahoo is the exception for a lack of accountability and transparency--others (Home Depot; Target ; etc) have been more forthcoming and have gone on to overcome the very challenges--right?
