Five myths (debunked) about security and privacy for Internet of Things
Internet of Things (IoT) holds great promise for a more intelligent, efficient, safe and even anticipatory means of human adaptation to the environment, be it natural or manmade.
Returning to the efficiency challenge, due to the expectation that with IoT unimaginable numbers of devices and systems will be connected, we need to become exponentially more efficient in security and privacy practices.
I have called for the creation of public-private partnerships that can store and analyze cyber incidents to determine what happened. Human behavior clearly plays a significant role in these incidents and we need to understand that behavior and how to modify it in a scientifically valid manner because the attackers are very good scientists. They build models of how the world works and they incorporate feedback as to whether their techniques are working. We need to have the same sort of savvy.
