“The Internet of Things” and Home Security
Almost anything can be made into a “smart” device, such as security cameras and sensors, TVs, garage door openers, door locks, wearable devices, pacemakers, and even cars. These devices are what we refer to as the “Internet of Things” (IoT), which holds the promise of adding a whole new level of convenience and connectedness to everyday life. Having that many new, connected computing devices, most of which record activity, presents new challenges for security and privacy. This course teaches employees the best practices for IoT devices both at home and at work.
