The Hackable Home: Smart Devices, Dumb Security
From fitness trackers to connected cars, IoT (“Internet of Things”) devices have made our lives easier and more convenient. Despite their nifty features, many harbor poor design when it comes to security and privacy of the data they collect (and often transmit) about you and your habits. And this aspect of their lives does not end when they are disposed of in the trash, or passed on, or sold. Join us as we talk to investigative journalist Andrew Laughlin of Which?, the biggest consumer group in Europe, who has been researching, testing and highlighting the risks of connected devices and services that lack privacy and security protections for the past eight years.
