Re: Security of IoT
Good points, definitely something to think about. I have always said and believed that security for businesses is what's most important. Not only for the businesses themselves, but their customers. I also think that a business will only worry about security when something is happening and they'll give it the attention then. I think security should always be given the attention is deserves or bad things can happen to the business and consumers will lose trust.

Security of IoT
I agree security is a challenge because companies only invest in basic security measures. They want until a security event occurs and then quickly react to fix the problem which is just a temporary solution until the next security event occurs. It puzzles me why companies only invest money in business development but don't invest the same amount in security, securing their data and systems and customer data. The cost to secure data after an event occurs grown exponentially versus being proactive and putting security measures in place early on.

Re: Security concerns are strong because of 2 components
Our objective should be to be proactive rather than reactive--I believe that your implicit admonition to us is to create and evolve into a proactive stance on issues to avoid the very challenges we're dealing with.

Re: Security concerns are strong because of 2 components
MikeP, of course it's justified. The distinction I was making was between clear and already present danger and not quite here yet danger. That is a distinction that unfortunately usually vanishes with time.

@John: I hope you agree that this paranoia is justified--As someone who has been a victim, I hope you understand that the paranoia is quite justified.

Here and there. It's a major theme in my serial adventure story "silence Like Diamonds" from last summer (http://www.lightreading.com/security/cloud-security/silence-like-diamonds---episode-1-family-business/d/d-id/717130) and in my novels The Merchants of Souls and The Armies of Memory

Re: Security concerns are strong because of 2 components
I think the computer industry has a particularly intense mix of rational and irrational fear because there are some really bad real life possibilities (like identity theft) AND some sci fi/horror story possibilities (murder via self driving car) and the "balance" just feels terrifying. Which is doubtless great for sales and marketing at security companies!

Re: Security concerns are strong because of 2 components
@JohnBarnes do you think for most people it's an even mix of rational and irrational fear? What of businesses concerned about security?
