IoT : Concept : Rejected .
the so-called "IoT" is (1) un-necessary and and (2) an excessive intrusion on privacy, and (3) a huge security risk and (4) a reliability and maintenance problem
concept is rejected .

Even if structured unstructured data is stolen how can it be used? I see not how.
IoT is structured data: people decide which devices should provide what outputs and at which situations.

1.       There are always manuals which explain the devices outputs.
2.       These manuals are unstructured data – texts.
3.       Oracle and IBM already structure unstructured data, texts:
Oracle: 'Term weights represent an extremely powerful feature, and care should be taken when using them... terms in an index are automatically weighted based on their distribution in the indexed content.'
Nobody ever before Oracle could obtain statistics (weights) on data automatically, index by common dictionary and use synonyms – see Oracle ATG?
IBM: "Watson can understand unstructured data, which is 80 percent of data today: all of the information that is produced primarily by humans for other humans to consume," according to an explanatory video about IBM's Watson tech.
4.       The devices manuals can be structured and attached to devices.

IoT data becomes a part of all unstructured data – which all can be searched through by queries meanings: for example, Oracle searches by synonyms on filtered through personal profiles queries, by meanings.

The structured unstructured data is absolutely secure: it cannot be read and understood in no way.

This is a small sample of structured data:
this - signify - <> : 333333
both - are - once : 333333
confusion - signify - <> : 333321
speaking - done - once : 333112
speaking - was - both : 333109
place - is - in : 250000
Do you understand what I said? Structured texts have nothing in common with their sources.

'Criminals can use these opportunities to remotely facilitate attacks on other systems, send malicious and spam e-mails, steal personal information, or interfere with physical safety.'
Even if structured unstructured data is stolen – how can it be used? I see not how. It's senseless piles of words and numbers.

The 10 Most Impactful Types of Vulnerabilities for Enterprises Today
Managing system vulnerabilities is one of the old est - and most frustrating - security challenges that enterprise defenders face. Every software application and hardware device ships with intrinsic flaws - flaws that, if critical enough, attackers can exploit from anywhere in the world. It's crucial that defenders take stock of what areas of the tech stack have the most emerging, and critical, vulnerabilities they must manage. It's not just zero day vulnerabilities. Consider that CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog lists vulnerabilitlies in widely used applications that are "actively exploited," and most of them are flaws that were discovered several years ago and have been fixed. There are also emerging vulnerabilities in 5G networks, cloud infrastructure, Edge applications, and firmwares to consider.
