"With the ever-increasing Internet of Things, it's easy to imagine security will become an issue."

Cabe, any devices which have connectivity or can talk each other may be vulnerable to security issues. So IoT devices can be most effected

"I didn't specifically mention IoT when I wrote that piece, but it was definitely on my mind. It's come up more and more lately. In fact, I'm writing a piece on that topic as we speak, so stay tuned."

Richard, thanks and eagerly waiting for that article.

That's right, Chuck. Cyber security was one of the main topics at the Rockwell Automation Fair last week. They see it as a problem that's just going to grow.

You're right, Rob. Security will be an Achilles heel for the Internet of Things. I mentioned this a few days ago and I'll say it again: In 2012, Mitt Romney's election campaign set up a special "clean room" where their most important computers couldn't get hacked. Their solution was simple and virtually foolproof: The computers were not connected to the Internet. That speaks volumes about the real solutions to security issues.

It will be intersting to see how the Internet of Things plays out. The hidden underbelly of IoT is security. That will become a major issue as more devices get connected.

"Connectivity is everything these days. If you can't talk to the outside, it's hard to make a compelling case for a product. Devices need to be connected either to the Internet, to an intranet, or some other outside medium."

Richard, connectivity is very important. Now a day's self talking devices are gaining momentums in market and this has been achieved through IoT (Internet of Things) and last mile connectivity.
