Here’s a cute but telling article on the privacy and security threats posed by wearable technology – things like smart watches and personal health monitors.
It’s a useful reminder that interconnected devices (Internet of Things stuff) are often lacking basic security or have only basic security, and they are often not updatable either. So they may be infected by security attacks that then get walked into an otherwise protected work environment and spring loose behind the firewalls.
Thus the suggestion of a Bring Your Own Fitbit policy. It’s not just the phones any more.
Views? Do you deal with such matters in your policies?
