Re: No security breach yet?
@Dr.T: Target found out pretty quickly (at least, they didn't take "a few years" to learn about their own security breach) when they were hacked.  I think major retailers are more on the ball these days -- at least when it comes to after-the-fact detection (if nothing else).

Re: compliance != secure
@Clarence: This is what I preach all the time in my own consulting, too.  Compliance, security, and data privacy are like slightly overlapping circles on a Venn diagram.  One does not equal the other; they are each merely components in the grander "data protection" scheme.

Re: TJX -- have we not learned?
With or without regulation, security measures will happen if there is a notable direct benefit or detriment involved to the company or the customer.

When it comes to consumer IoT, however, the detriment to consumers of compromised devices is minimal if not outright nil because their devices will still fundamentally work.  (The fridge will still be a fridge -- even while it acts as a botnet zombie to take down a web service.)

That sounds very relevant. Thanks for sharing the news about retailers. Its true that, because no serious breaches have been reported it doesn't mean that we all may not collectively wake up with a security hangover.

Better to outsource this responsibility to a third-party, very expensive to secure and insure.

"When you use your credit card you are simply a wildebeest on the plains."

It makes sense but you can secure it, as Apple Pay does not share any personal info with the merchant it may be better than a credit card processing.

Re: TJX -- have we not learned?
"Sometimes it feels like we have to have more than regulatory and legal shackles to force security to happen."

That is an important point, security is expensive, without regulation it is not happening, especially in IoT.

Re: compliance != secure
"Good enough to pass the audit is good enough."

This is actually a good point. For me passing audit should be resulting into a good level of security measures in the environment.
