Re: Vodafone's Skpper on State of IoT Security
@srufolo1 - you would think all companies would think all companies would concern themselves a little more with security. It would be nice if a major security breach would actually result in a loss of business for these companies but it just doesn't. As much as I love Target, and think it would be nice if these companies had a set back from their carelessness, even I didn't stop shopping at target after they were hacked.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@srufolo1 - I agree. But we're unfortunately pretty limited as to what we can do about it. Unless we stopped doing business with companies that use Equifax. And realistically that isn't as easy as wet might want it to be.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@freehe that's true about a lot of things that get a lot of public attention, including sustainable design and equal employment opportunity.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@Ariella, I agree. However, although the article states that larger companies have the budget and resources to implement IoT security measures but it doesn't mean they will. I have worked for medium and large sized companies that lacked basic security measures. Many companies publicly say they think security is a high priority but in private they don't have tools or plans to support security.

IoT Security
IoT security will cause an increase in operating costs. However, the upfront costs are much cheaper than the backend costs due to a data breach or other security attack.

Security policies, procedures, plans, and audits are also needed in addition to security tools for IoT.

Security
I am glad the Vodafone views security as a top priority. Moving towards IoT adds even complexity to securing data in an enterprise. Companies that use IoT will have to make security as top priority.

Vodafone's Skpper on State of IoT Security
Interesting article. You would think the companies with more  IoT connections would be most worried about security. Seven percent of those concerned about security was surprisingly low. Guess the bigger you get, the more savvy about implementing effective measures to prevent breaches.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@elizabethv  Equifax disgusts me. It's not "recovering" from anything as nothing can really touch this organization. It's been doing what it does for years without any guilt with all their inaccurate reporting that has destroyed people's lives. Why would it care about a breach?

@elizabethv True, progress can take time, but it may be reassuring to think that the problem may be solved in time for the monitors your children use for your grandchildren. I'm glad you like the site.

Re: Vodadone IOT Security
@Ariella - that's awesome! Actually, that whole website is awesome. I want to check out almost every single list on there. I'm also really glad to see some agencies taking the possibility of hacking through baby monitors seriously. Hopefully in time, the weak links will be fixed. By then though I doubt I'll have a need for baby monitiors in my house anymore. Lol.
