We Dont Want IoT Cybersecurity Regulations

It simply makes no sense to call for IoT devices to be certified safe-and-secure. Before you get bent out of shape, hear me out.

Regulations are unwieldy blunt instruments, best left as a last resort. Cybersecurity regulations are not nimble, tend to be outdated the day they are instituted, and become a lowest-common-threshold… Read More

You can update ..Generally, I’m a fan of letting market forces figure out best solutions to whatever evolving needs we may have, but I’m enough of a realist to accept that’s not a workable answer to every need.
