Critical industries are largely unprepared for a potential wave of destructive attacks.

The same will hit Internet of Things.

There is a big misconception about securing IoT systems: "who is interested in the data of this sensor?", for instance a temperature. Probably only the owner of the sensor. But this might not be the right question to ask. It should also include "can I trust that data?", especially if the temperature is measured to control something else automatically. Manipulating the temperature can destroy a steel mill furnace, or a shipment of deep-freezed fish. Just knowing that someone can take over your sensor also leaves you open to extortion schemes; "we want $$$ to NOT destroy your shipment, or plant".

Internet banking is built on trusting the user, the online bank and the transaction. An Internet of Things connected world requires the same level of trust to work.
