I have been to talks where the possibility of using IOT being used to potentially piggy-back connections/data and thus creating a local cloud (or "MIST" as I recall it termed).
Security will not improve unless as Schneier suggests:
"improved security without being told [to do so] by the government"
and the MIST could end up another playground for extortionists/malware/viruses/trojans...
This type of data should be encrypted in the db, then it is far more difficult for the hacks to get the raw data WHOLESALE.
All too often seems they hack the db and have all the data they need as its stored in plain text.
ENCRYPT personal/sensitive data and avoid this (or at least make it more difficult by encrypting it).
This is not all the registrars fault/issue (I have yet to find the perfect registrar).
I have been moving lots of .co.uk domains around for over 2 decades. I have learned to never move a domain until you have confirmed you have control of it.
BEFORE TRANSFERRING: Get your arse to Nominet, login (currently here: https://registrants.nominet.org.uk/app/ ) and check you can manage the domain. Then if issues occur during the transfer you can more easily correct them.
How many companies are using Twitter for the entry to their own systems? The knock-on affect will be big.
What about the others using Facebook (or facefarce), or google, etc. if, more likely when, they are compromised the ripple will grow to a tsunami.
no one ever consider the number of other companies now gone and struggling due to this mammoth monopoly moving into all parts of our lives?
Just think of the majority of marketing-spend, £billions, is now going to google, previously (I mean 15 to 20 yrs ago), local and national newspapers could earn good returns from adverts places, this has now mostly gone. Gone to google.
As we know other Int. companies are going the same too, Amazon, etc.
To be allowed to do this while paying just pennies in tax is criminal and our tax laws must be changed.

YOU OBVIOUSLY DO NOT HAVE A CLUE! Any volunteers would not have the expertise to correctly report the REAL culprits. Totally clueless comment!
