Cyber security
More of the attacks are coming our way and we are here as ordinary cyber users doing nothing. It is high time to take up the issue and secure our connection from being tracked by deplying reliable vpn server like PureVPN which offer great services at minimal costs. They have encrypted online connections which is good for security.

The same will hit Internet of Things.
There is a big misconception about securing IoT systems: "who is interested in the data of this sensor?", for instance a temperature. Probably only the owner of the sensor. But this might not be the right question to ask. It should also include "can I trust that data?", especially if the temperature is measured to control something else automatically. Manipulating the temperature can destroy a steel mill furnace, or a shipment of deep-freezed fish. Just knowing that someone can take over your sensor also leaves you open to extortion schemes; "we want $$$ to NOT destroy your shipment, or plant".

Internet banking is built on trusting the user, the online bank and the transaction. An Internet of Things connected world requires the same level of trust to work.

What I do not understand...
It is everywhere the same, not only in the US. But I always wonder, what could be the reasons that companies are so unprepared? Is it because of the costs for security? Is it a lack of know-how? Do they still underestimate the threat of cyber attacks? Or what is it? I mean, the press is full of reports about successful cyber attacks. So everybody should know about the risks and take it serious.
