Are we ready to integrate IOT devices ? Security ?

The hack of Sony Pictures have raised many questions about securing our network and devices.

In a single week, hackers have brought a major Hollywood studio to its knees.

Sony Pictures is dealing with more than downed computers and frozen email. Movies have been leaked, and internal documents have exposed private company memos, along with employees' salaries, Social Security numbers and health information.

 We need to first work towards securing our existing infrastructure and data. If we are unable to do so, imagine what happens when we connect these embedded devices are connected to internet. IOT may be rapidly flourishing into our everyday life, whether in cars, power utility, farm etc, but if we do not build these devices with security in mind, it may cause far larger disaster. not only in monetary terms, but in human lives too.
