Best Practices for Keeping Your Home Network Secure

Abstract: Electronic computing devices including computers, laptops, printers, mobile phones,
tablets, security cameras, home appliances, cars and other “Internet of Things” devices
must all be secured in order to prevent attack. Most home entertainment and utility
devices, such as home monitoring systems, baby monitors, Internet of Things (IoT),
Smart Devices, Blu-ray™ players, streaming video players, and video game consoles
are capable of accessing the Internet, recording audio, and/or capturing video.
Implemented security measures can ensure these devices don’t become the weak link in
your home protection.
