Robert Metzger, Robert Joseph O'Donnell: Internet of Things: When cyberattacks have physical effects

New risks accompany the Internet of Things (IoT). Software attacks that produce physical effects are especially troubling.

Take the Bowman Avenue Dam attack, as an example. On March 24, 2016, the Department of Justice announced charges against an Iranian hacker who mounted a cyber-physical attack upon the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems of the Bowman Dam, in Rye, New York.

Colin Barker: Trust and security fears could hold back the Internet of Things

Thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT) some of us are already eyeing everyday household devices with something approaching suspicion.

While it might seem to be a stretch to believe that humble devices like irons may be quietly tracking our every move or be used for some other underhand purpose, apparently six percent of us think it might - a figure rises to one in ten in France.

Chuck Martin: 70% In US Concerned About Privacy In Internet Of Things

While the Internet of Things grows, privacy – or the lack of it – is what drives concern about its growth.

Privacy is at the top of a long list of IoT concerns in a new global study.

The study comprised a survey of  5,200 mobile media users in eight countries (Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, South Africa, UK and US) conducted by On Device Research for  the Mobile Ecosystems Forum (MEF), a global trade body.

Could the Internet of Things morph into the Abandonment of Things?

Chrysler killed off Plymouth. GM did it to Oldsmobile and Pontiac. Ford did it to Mercury. Microsoft even did it to Windows XP. Yet today, years after the demise of these products, they all continue to run. For the vehicles, parts remain available and dealers are happy to perform maintenance and take your money. Even for XP, Microsoft still issues the occasional security patch. Elsewhere, ink cartridges can still be purchased for Epson inkjet printers discontinued long ago.

Kevin Bishop: What the Internet of Things Means for Today’s CMO
