"The new opportunities associated with IoT are quite attractive, and understandably are driving the continued investment in this tech convergence. However, as with anything new, there are significant risks that surface as well."

Pretty, you are true with new technologies. Most of the things are meant for human advancement and to make the system simpler and user friendly. But when it falls on wrong hands things may get complicated and get misused.

Re: Industrial IoT
"i am on your side for some extent. However when it comes to banks, they use CCTV – video monitoring to capture both employee and customer behaviors. In that case do you still think it's is a privacy concern?"

Shamika, bank and financial institutions are exceptional cases. Moreover, they are monitoring only the visitors and not any of the employees in particular. But in industry it's in different angle, they want to monitor all your actions including how you are spending the time.

Yet with new opportunities..
The new opportunities associated with IoT are quite attractive, and understandably are driving the continued investment in this tech convergence. However, as with anything new, there are significant risks that surface as well. For instance, securing this seamless new network is going to require to a new philosophy. What organizations are using today is not going to work when introducing so many new avenues and moving so much more data across new nodes.  Time for a security evolution.

Re: Industrial IoT
@chris, I agree with you. The data monitoring will give you the true picture. However when it comes to different service industries, how can we convert it in to numbers?

Re: peak efficiency
@Thomas I agree with you. However depending on the industry, I think it is vital to monitor employee efficiency to track the productivity. This can be both qualitative and quantitative measures.
