couple of questions
It's awesome that folks in IT security are making such a great effort to work with the various IoT companies etc as it's a Pandora's Box that needs to be addressed.

That said....

Q1 - I'm curious though if there are any initiatives in the works to work with these IoT companies when it comes to interacting with security researchers (outside said company/ies), their response and reaction to bugs, exploits, zero days etc that are brought to their attention especially in good faith. 

And

Q2 - Once informed, how to categorize and address the disclosed issue within the company. Is it a "stop everything and get this fixed asap" issue because said company may have early beta equipment in-use in the wild (customers) and may feel the issue is enough of a threat to apply most of their resources to fixing said issue (at least those resources necessary to address the issue) even if it means taking those resources away from their current work (perhaps in the midst of meeting a deadline?) I realize it's all contextual and we could all come up with 100 different scenarios but it should be noted that a lot of start-ups are going to be riding a fine line with deadlines, money, perception etc and likely won't be able to weather a misstep quite as well as the larger more established companies.

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.
