The explosive growth of the Internet of Things and Smart Home Technologies have dramatically changed the potential security risks on both home and business network.
Within the enterprise, these risks are reduced dramatically through enterprise network and security processes and technologies. When used at home, these computers are exposed to a dramatically different environment. This network is most likely unmanaged, possibly having a firewall with default access credentials, and the machines are commingled with IOT/ home automation devices that have been proven to have extremely limited security in place. IOT is largely unpatched, unmanaged and ripe for exploitation.
