Can't help but think they have missed the point

The biggest risk with IoT, is not whether someone steals your addressbook though a security hole in an app but that the IoT devices themselves have massive secirity holes which allow your entire private network to be exposed. Most devices really shouldn't even be visible on the other side of your router but beause the OEM wants to know everything about you, the device won't even operate unless it can see the OEM's server.
