On-demand Webinar: When Price and Priority Precede Security—How Cybercriminals Exploit Smart Devices
With sales of smart domestic devices booming, unsecured home workers create lucrative entry points for exploitation by cybercriminals. 75 percent of all European businesses take no steps to secure home internet connection or provide software protection for home devices. What is more shocking is over a quarter offer no protection at all, creating gaps for attackers. This heightens the risk of cyberattacks for businesses and their employees, as hybrid and home working become the norm.
Through even the most innocent of devices, bad actors can access home networks with connections to company devices—or company data on consumer devices—and seize the opportunity to steal data and intellectual property worth millions. With device security far down the list for fraught buyers trying to cut costs, and employer protection of smart home devices being afforded to few, a huge opening is left for cybercriminals looking to take advantage of the boom in smart devices in the home.
