Internet of Things: Security misconceptions, expectations, and the future
Nitesh Dhanjani is a well-known security researcher, writer, and speaker. He is currently executive director at a large consulting firm, where he advises C-suite executives at the largest Fortune 100 corporations on how to establish and execute complex multimillion-dollar cybersecurity programs.
He recently released his latest book, Abusing the Internet of Things: Blackouts, Freakouts, and Stakeouts, so it was the perfect time to have a conversation about IoT security.

You must remember that an IoT device is, in fact, a small computer… and as all computers and smartphones, they are complex machines. All such devices will have bugs and security holes that need to be patched and updated. Developers can take a page from the computer industry. Take for instance Windows XP. These small computers will be used long after end-of-life when the product is not supported anymore. As products grow old they will be more and more vulnerable to attacks.
