Security threats must embolden consumer defenses. Too often, users are simply activating devices in their home network or on the road without considering connectivity risks. As smart device adoption, from thermostats and light bulbs to garage doors and gates, continues to grow, users must be vigilant to not only change passwords but to take advantage of advanced security settings.

As organizations progress Zero Trust security at work, they must fortify their security awareness programs; especially since the home office and business travel are the new corporate perimeter.
