Episode Description

Most of us have many smart devices in our homes--smart vacuums, personal assistant devices, smart TVs, smart light bulbs, smart alarms, smart mattresses, smart toys, smart cars, etc. These devices make our lives easier, but they can have major security flaws that can let hackers into your home. How can we safely use our devices while keeping malicious users away from our homes and out of our lives? Recently an exploit in a Bluetooth enabled kids toy was revealed that allows a malicious user to pair their smartphone to the toy and talk to kids. And this just one example--truly terrifying stuff! In this episode, we'll be joined by cybersecurity experts Bob Carver and Avrohom Gottheil to delve into device security and privacy at home, and show you how to make your home safe from prying eyes and ears.
