At CES, Focus is On ‘Cool Factor’ Not IoT Security
When it comes to IoT, the priority at CES is the “wow factor” – but not so much a focus on security. With the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) afoot this week, headlines are crammed with the offbeat connected products from the show – including everything from a smart belt all the way down to a connected toilet.
