Although they may not seem like a threat, “smart” devices like Internet-connect thermostats, TVs, and refrigerators can pose a serious security risk. These devices are part of the “Internet of Things” (IoT) and can be used in a lot of nefarious ways:

 

Your best defense against these attacks is to be sure that you have changed the default User Name and Password on the device; instruction on how to do this are included with every device. The default values are common knowledge, shared amongst hackers, and make hacking the device trivial. Further, much as you do with any other computing device, be sure to keep it updated with the latest patches.

I read a statistic yesterday that the amount of compromised, hacked data will very soon outweigh the amount of unhacked data. We want to be sure to keep CCC’s data in the second group!

As always, if you have any questions, please let us know.
