Consumer IoT adoption is on the rise, but the introduction of devices like smart lights, locks, wearables and more all present a new security risk. From PII to photos, some devices handle sensitive data that device manufacturers need to protect. But every device is a potential new route for an attacker to infiltrate the home network.
Meanwhile, more people than ever before are working from home. Their work is likely to include the use of sensitive corporate data, as well as regular connections to an employer’s network – something attackers could exploit through a smart home device.
When it comes to smart home IoT, a single security gap is all an attacker needs. It’s vital that every device is protected by industry-leading security.
