Re: Connected Devices to Reach 46 Billion Security
I agree. Security is my top concern with IoT. Aside from the physical implications of a breach (e.g., messing with thermostat temps; unlocking doors), there's the potential for exploiting intimate personal data as well. I'm not comfortable with the idea of having so many of my actions monitored.

Re: A truly Connected World in 5 Years
@maryam - very true.  The personal connection provide feedback and personal warmth - that autonomous response does not deliver.

Connected Devices to Reach 46 Billion Security
I believe IoT is the most vulnerable to security risks and threats because it is some a large complex field of technology and suffers from all the same security threats as all other technology products and services.

Consumers are still concerned about security of their personal data. Hacks on connected devices have not reached the level of attacks on VPN, corporate websites and other products and services but it will in the future.

I would like to know why they feel consumers are indifferent about IoT security.

Connected Devices to Reach 46 Billion
"there are some technical issues that will complicate large deployments of IoT systems. While IoT platform development is flourishing, not all components of a successful IoT project are up to speed." I am not surprised.

"Analytics and database systems are, for the most part, not architected to handle the Big Data 2.0 era that the IoT brings," says Steffen Sorrell, Juniper Research senior analyst and author of the report. True so true.

Connected Devices and Security
Connected devices have the same security issues as all other technology products. Companies must take measures to ensure consumer and company data is secured or the industry will see a new slew of data breaches, hacks and viruses with connected devices.

Companies will need to use standards and ensure devices are interoperable.

Connected Devices and Jobs
As IoT produces more connected devices and services many blue collar worker jobs will become extinct and many employees will become unemployed.

Employers will need to develop transition plans to train and move blue collar workers with little to no computer skills into new positions.

No matter what your profession you must learn basic computer skills to remain employable and competitive in today's job market.

It is up to each and everyone of us to make it so--despite all the constraints we have to deal with on a daily basis.

Onward to 2017 w/all its' possibilities
