If you thought your home was safe from hackers, think again. This infographic explains how.


You have probably seen movies where criminal gangs hack into government systems and steal data or take control, and you might even have read about incidents like that in real life, but you probably don’t envisage your home being subjected to the same sort of attack.

This infographic asks whether your home is safe from hackers and provides some uncomfortable answers.

The Internet of Things is growing all the time and our world is becoming increasingly connected, which is great if you want your fridge to order more milk when you are running low or want to control your heating even when you are not at home, but not so good if it provides a window of opportunity for hackers.

You should be very uncomfortable with the thought of someone taking over the camera in your laptop to spy on on you and the idea that a criminal could remotely unlock the door of your car should concern many of us.

Take a look at how your everyday devices could offer cybercriminals a way into your home and your life. It can almost be like leaving the front door open when you look at how your security can be compromised, so it makes sense to be aware of what hackers can do and be vigilant with your security measures.
