Recent IoT Research Says Broadband Households Care More About Cybersecurity Than Ever Before

Simply installing security systems in smarthomes is no longer enough, and security integrators may want to consider bolstering cybersecurity measures when installing residential systems.

This swift change in tone is due largely to a recently released whitepaper from IoT research firm Parks Associates, titled "Residential Security and Encryption: Setting the Standard, Protecting Consumers." The whitepaper revealed that 64% of U.S. broadband households are concerned about security and privacy when using their connected devices.

Parks Associates also found that the majority of homeowners assume security integrators are addressing their cybersecurity concerns.
