‘A Regulation of security around the internet of things (IoT) is becoming more critical as the things being connected become more critical, according to security techologist Bruce Schneier.
“Regulation is coming and is coming in a big way,” he told Infosecurity Europe 2017 in London, urging the security industry to embrace the fact and get involved.
Schneier said while there is always concern that regulation will stifle innovation, this has not been historically true. In reality, industry always ends up adapting, he said.
“We will adapt too. We are going to have to because governments will get involved regardless because the risks are too great and the stakes are too high.’
