Cybersecurity Perceptions of a Connected Home

While connected devices continue to populate homes, they are being targeted by new and evolving attack methods. Cybercriminals seek to take advantage of unprotected home networks, the end-users are becoming increasingly aware of the new threats. However, they lack knowledge or appropriate tools to address this shift in home security.
Recently, we’ve surveyed more than 2000 people about their cybersecurity perceptions. Despite using traditional cybersecurity tools, the survey participants do not believe that they can protect themselves against cyber threats. More than two-thirds are not sure if they can identify when their device is under attack.
