Agreed!
IoT represents some interesting challenges for organizations primarily because of the sheer number of new connected things many of which will be mobile.  Fortunately, according to the CSC CIO Survey, most IT leaders feel they are at least on the right path when it comes to integrating mobile tools into the enterprise. Specifically, IT leaders are generally confident in their progress in this arena to date, with 53% describing it as very good-to-excellent. Peter Fretty, IDG blogger working on behalf of CSC

Re: IoT is anathema to data security
@asksqn: Yes. I too am skeptical about the workings of IOT. One small leak along the data path and hackers will attack there and yes millions of personal documents would be at stake.

Re: IoT is anathema to data security
I agree wholeheartedly. I would too! Anyway keeping too much personal data on moble device is inviting trouble but having it connected to the Internet is inviting trouble!

IoT is anathema to data security
Personally, any item that I may purchase I'll be sure to disconnect it from default internet access lest it start transmitting my personal data back to the mothership and other unknown entities.
