    They should be certified for safe use as medical devises (I hope ) are.

    We can do various things along the IT device supply chain; from chip to casing and cables, but we also ought to look at some analogue of animal "imprinting" of the device with the end user. Then we could use this imprinted relationship as the basis for authenticating any change in the configuration or operation of the device and of the information exchanged between it and the outside world.
    It would operate somewhat like a permanent digital bio-recognition and authentication record native to the device.

    Most of the security breaches have occurred because of Phishing
    Phishing advertisement for free Product & services with survey or for trail software download should be banned, SEC or consumer protection should police the internet advt. Any misleading advertisement should be punished by law. All Advt. should have identifications key displayed on advt. so they can be prosecuted for false or misleading the consumer. In short build a Iron curtain for Internet scammer of everything, this will automatically lead to code of business practice on Internet.

    In addition to the current security strategies in place, I believe that taking a more pro-active approach in security versus a reactive can greatly improve issues that we currently have.

    Good write up that raises some very good points. Corman hit it on the head when he said that it goes back to cost benefit. The consumer hasn’t assessed the risk. I think a majority of consumers have fallen victim to the argument from authority, and have developed a perception that manufacturers have assessed the risks, which is near impossible for a manufacturer due to the sheer number of devices and the number of permutations and configurations in which those devices can conceivably interact.

    Educating people about the risks is a critical strategy, but then the advocates will have to face the pressure from the manufacturers unwilling to raise the security standard at their expense. In my opinion, enforcement from the government and setting international standards is just as important. Enforcement should combine severe enough measures to do the job, though.

    Related example. In Canada, it's with the introduction of digital Accessibility laws and fines like $100K DAILY the organizations started to make the necessary changes. And still, quite often it's just a minimalistic attempt to "meet by letter, not the spirit".
