Re: Great post
I think that one of the biggest challenges that Don brings to light here is the concept of threat modeling in the IoT space. It will be a long time before we can measure risk here, because the threats are almost unknown and the impact hasn't truly been measured. The risks and threats will be different depending on which "thing" we're talking about. I don't see how we can approach IoT security as we do with, say, mobile devices, where the hardware and software are very comparable.

Re: Great post
Agree, @Bprince, that it's encouraging that the security community is thinking about the real-world challenges with the IoT. But I just hope that the larger community of consumers and manufacturers are paying attention!

Great post
This was a great post. There are a lot of good security conversations going on around IoT that make me hopefully that as things move forward there will be more security built into a lot of these devices.

Great Read
This was a very honest (and entertaining) look at the current state of IoT and security. I applaud your efforts to turn this challenge into an opportunity. Whoever manages to provide a solution with broad applications as you are suggesting will have a lot of business on their hands in the  not so distant future.

Providing Value
A major item to take away from this for Information Security is providing organizational value. A huge advocate for security is not only showing how safeguards keep the organization's data safe, but how that saved data translates into dollars. 

I have stressed this in previous posts, but there is a myriad of ways to show Information Security providing extensive value.

"Regulation is an imperative"
Great blog, Don. You really lay out the roadmap necessary to start securing the IoT -- and the time is now (especially for manufacturing industries like automobile which have five year design cycles) to get started. The big is (IMHO) is getting a momentum going within the technoloogy community that pushes industry (and government) to develop enforce approprate safety regulations. I applaud your efforts at Lab Mouse (http://www.securitymouse.com/#mouse) and encourage the Dark Reading community to contribute to the security frameworks you are developing.

The Promise and Reality of Cloud Security
Cloud security has been part of the cybersecurity conversation for years but has been on the sidelines for most enterprises. The shift to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic and digital transformation projects have moved cloud infrastructure front-and-center as enterprises address the associated security risks. This report - a compilation of cutting-edge Black Hat research, in-depth Omdia analysis, and comprehensive Dark Reading reporting - explores how cloud security is rapidly evolving.
