Re: IoT Security
the "managing IoT lifecycle" the requirement to delete associated user accounts I would say this would be quite important, most unused / inactivated accounts are the main risk to the devices.

Security in IoT
We are actually late securing IoT devices. This like starting internet without considering security and then trying to secure it with patches.

IoT Security
Great read. I'd be interested to hear some recommendations for device-user interaction authentication as well as device authentication. I'd also add to the "managing IoT lifecycle" the requirement to delete associated user accounts. Insider attacks are made even easier when employee accounts are not deactivated.
