Mikko Hypponen;s Security Talk
Much as I respect his position, I think he is talking linearly and not laterally. E,g. "I cant see SW in IOT devices". Nobody could see men landing on the moon 100 years ago be we did. IOT devices in a year or so can easily hold a 128 MB /(or GB) memory/storage and enough briains to  encrypt data and commands and to take part in a later cyber security architecture, However, the IoT manufacturers will have to toe the IoT function implementation line drawn by Goverments and businesses who carry very large sticks in the pursuit of security.

Even today, the bad guys are practising their IoT breach skills, e.g. Iranian nucclear plant, Ukraine power station, cars stopped in 'flight'  (by friendly hackers as a trial). They are an order of magnitude greater hazard than current exposures and 2 orders of magniude in number.
