With the Sony Entertainment hacks, data security has become an issue in the press and a headache for database administrators. Sensitive data generated by wearable devices are presumably no exception. Are there any particular security concerns with data from wearable devices? Are doctors doing enough to protect patient data? We asked Doctor Seyedmostafa Safavi, an associate fellow at the Cyber Security Unit at the National University of Malaysia and co-author of a recent review on the subject to elaborate.
