Security and Privacy in the Connected Home

​I am often asked about the security of Personal Digital Assitants, Smart Themostats, Gaming Consoles and other Wi-FI enabled devices at your home.  There is an excellent article on this topic from the Center for Internet Security.

Stay cyber safe with your Internet of Things (IoT) devices!

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to have a smart home? You could remotely change the temperature in your house, tell your lights to come on, or ask your refrigerator if you need to get milk, all from your smart home device or smartphone. You could play video games and access all your streaming services from one device, or know who is at your door from your connected doorbell.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is introducing these features into our homes by rapidly applying connectivity to everyday appliances and home features. As IoT devices become a part of our daily lives and likely will become part of many more homes as holiday gifts, we need to take a look at the security risks and privacy concerns this smart technology introduces into our lives.
