The Internet of Things is 'dangerous' but UK.gov won't ride to the rescue

UK.Gov, non merci

If people want to plug any old shite into their network that is entirely up to them.

If they get sued them because their IOT device damaged some one else's business tough.

If an IOT supplier gets sued because they enabled the aforementioned idiot, tough.

It has nothing to do with the Government.

After a couple of lawsuits perhaps people will consider what they are doing, customers will demand secure products, suppliers will only supply secure products.

The best the Government could do is put out periodic warnings about the possibility of people being held liable for their actions.
