Re: Vodafone's Skpper on State of IoT Security
I completely agree. I think security breaches are so common today that many people dont even blink an eye. Im hoping that soon well be able to at least bring these security matters to the forefront and slow them down.

Re: Vodafone's Skpper on State of IoT Security
I literally had a non-reaction to the Equifax breach. Ive become immune to the shock and invasion of privacy factor. I immediately went into disaster recovery mode: Put a fraud alert on all the reporting agencies. Change some passwords. Hope for the best.

Re: Security
@afwriter - that doesn't seem overly likely. The former CEO of Life Lock posted his social security for all to see.  It was part of his brazen advertising - he belived so strongly that Life Lock was successful that he was willing to give his social security number to the world. My understanding is that he quit after having his identity stolen a number of times. Though I suppose that was just one CEO and not multiple. So maybe the idea is completely accurate, it just hasn't happened to enough of them yet.

Re: Security
If only all companies cared like Vodafone. Maybe it will take some CEO's information being stolen before all companies start taking heightened security seriously.

Re: IoT Security
@freehe You're absolutely right. I would liken it to insurance; you are paying now in hopes that what you are paying for will never happen.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@elizabethv it seems simple enough, and if it meets your needs that's great. I'm sure that at some point someone will come up with a "smart" version that allows parents to track their kids' location on their phones and possibly even send some preset messages to the necklace  like "Come home now."

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@Ariella - It doesn't give off a location, but they are still little and so they don't ever get very far from me. Mostly I use it for when my son goes into the bathroom by himself, because he's 6 and "independent" and doesn't want to go into the woman's bathrooom with me anymore. But I stand right outside the door the entire time, so if the alarm went off I'd bust into the bathroom no questions asked. And while I do use it when we are in crowded locations in case we're separated and I'm constantly keeping track of them, so I can't see them getting far. And the necklace can definitely be removed but I keep it tied short so it doesn't just slip easily over my kids very big heads (seriously - my kids have huge heads) The system isn't perfect, but while they're little I feel comfortable enough with it.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
Wow, that sounds super invasive and uncomfortable. Your mom's migraines must be pretty bad if she is willing to go to such lengths. Luckily, for you and I implantable devices aren't mandatory...yet.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@elizabethv a kind of personal alarm? Does it also give off location signals? I suppose that some wouldn't be satisfied with that because the necklace can be removed altogether.
