Re: Scare tactics

As far as scary goes...I'd say it's serious but not scary, because unlike the horror movie, we know exactly what to do about it. 

Hope that no one thinks this is a call to do nothing and wait until everything is perfect. In fact, it's quite the opposite, as doing nothing about security is part of the problem today. No one should be waiting to employ best security practices: the technologies already exist today to address these serious risks. Employing them doesn't get in the way of using the Healthcare Internet of Things. Hardening the device can be as straightforward as providing for immutable device identity, a secure boot and application whitelisting. Failure to adopt security will lead to distrust of the Healthcare IoT and get in the way of its adoption. There is no reason to wait.

Scare tactics
"They Sky is Falling. The Sky is Falling." Isn't that what the umbrella salesman says? 

While the article did mention some of the benefits of Healthcare Internet of Things, the overal tone was to make this a very scary place, discouraging use of these technologies until all is perfect. Just consider the source.
