Yes, the future is a strange world, and not only are retailers are going to have increasingly adapt their go to market strategies to embrace digital customers that are literally nothing more than binary code, and which can all band together to create massive automated buying consortiums, but they’re also going to have to consider the security implications.

Afterall, what happens when your Smart Fridge, which has access to your digital wallet gets hacked and starts placing orders with a criminal group rather than Amazon? Should all transactions be biometrically approved, and what are the privacy implications? And just what are the best practises when it comes to debugging and securing these digital “black box” systems?
