    Interesting article! I defenitely think smart devices need regulations. The Internet of things is coming. Within a few years there will be many, many products connected via the internet. And they will be produced by developers who didn´t have a lot of contact with the security practices. I really don´t want to blame them, but this might become a problem. Therefore regulations might be a good way to set standards that enforce certain security standards.
