Quote of the day—Brian Krebs

I have been asked by several reporters over the past few days whether I think government has a role to play in fixing the IoT mess. Personally, I do not believe there has ever been a technology challenge that was best served by additional government regulation.

  1. The only legitimate role that government has in this or any other similar issue is
    to make sure that those responsible for creating and marketing systems such as this with inherent vulnerabilities are not able avoid any legal repercussions for damages. To many times companies buy themselves immunity for the results of their poor research and shoddy engineering by spending on politicians rather than R&D and real world testing.

  2. Every now and then, say once in a millennia, government can be the jockey, but the rest of the time it’s just the saddle.
