Protecting Broadband Networks by Securing the Smart Home

Securing the Internet of Things (IoT) from hackers and cyber crooks needs to be a top concern for manufacturers, consumers and broadband network providers.

More than 26 million U.S. households own at least one smart home device, which represents a 35 percent increase from the beginning of 2016. Half of consumers say privacy is their greatest concern when connecting smart devices to the internet, and 40 percent say they have experienced a privacy or security problem with a connected device in the past year, according to a recent research report from Parks Associates (link is external).
