Could IoT Allow Do-over for Privacy, Security — & Trust?

Expect to be reading a lot here about privacy and security between now and my panel on those issues at the IoT Summit in DC, Oct. 1 & 2, as I prep to ask the panel questions!
Here’s another, from Stacy Higginbotham (BTW, she does a great podcast on IoT issues!), based on a conversation with ARM CTO Mike Muller. […]

Good Paper by Mercatus on IoT Privacy and Security

I’m politically on the liberal, not the libertarian side, but I’ve come to respect the libertarian Mercatus Center, in large part because of the great work Jerry Brito has done there on governmental transparency.
As part of my preparation to moderate a panel on security and privacy at the IoT Summit on October 1st in DC, I […]

The Hill Publishes Op-Ed on IoT Security and Privacy

Earlier this week, The Hill, the highly-respected Capitol Hill newspaper, published an op-ed co-authored by Chris Rezendes of INEX Advisors and me on the ever-important topic of IoT privacy and security (or lack thereof!).
In it, we warned that “on the heels of the NSA scandal, news of security problems’ threat to privacy may cripple the […]

I’ll moderate D.C. panel on IoT privacy and security!

Huzzah!  As you know, I’ve been repeating the mantra that, as technological barriers such as battery size disappear, the most important obstacle threatening full development of the Internet of Things is the linked issues of privacy and security.
That’s why I’m quite honored to announce I’ll be hosting a panel on those issues at the 2013 […]

CRUCIAL: more media coverage underscores need for IoT emphasis on privacy & security

Sorry to keep harping on it, but two recent articles in high-visibility publications — The NY Times and Forbes — underscore my contention that security and privacy issues threaten to derail the IoT revolution before it really gets going.
I say that because I spent a decade as an award-winning corporate crisis communicator — on more […]

More evidence U.S. lags dangerously behind EU on IoT privacy

There’s new confirmation that the U.S. remains dangerously behind the European Union on the twin issues of Internet of Things privacy and security. As I’ve warned before, especially in the context of the continued outrage over the NSA surveillance, if these issues aren’t solved collaboratively by the private sector and government, they threaten to derail […]

Shodan: maybe this will get people to take IoT privacy/security seriously!

Wired has an article this week about Shodan, the “IoT search engine,” which I hope scares the bejesus out of enough companies and government officials that they’ll finally realize how absolutely critical it is that we make security and privacy THE top public policy/corporate management priorities regarding the IoT.
Shodan’s homepage proudly proclaims that it will […]

FTC to hold a workshop on #IoT privacy and security implications!

Bravo! I’ve been critical of the President’s silence on the IoT, especially in light of how frequently the Chinese premier mentions it — and  spends money on it.
Now the FTC has broken that silence, with announcement of a Nov. 21st workshop in DC on the Internet of Things’ implications for privacy and security.
Specifically, they are […]

Aiden Quilligan, Accenture Industry X.0, on AI:

Mindset and AI: must undo what Hollywood has done on this over years, pose it as human vs. machine.
We think it should be human PLUS machine.

IoT Design Manifesto 1.0: great starting point for your IoT strategy & products!

Late in the process of writing my forthcoming IoT strategy book, The Future Is Smart, I happened on the “IoT Design Manifesto 1.0” site. I wish I’d found it earlier so I could have featured it more prominently in the book.
The reason is that the manifesto is the product (bear in mind that the original […]
