Growing automation increased the risk profile of our interaction with these devices. Smart, independent devices place safety in the hands of isolated and independent devices and challenged the concept of the traditional security perimeter. This moves security validation away from the secure enterprise datacentre and infrastructure and onto the developer, maintainer and consumer.
