Linked – FTC sues IoT manufacturer for failure to secure devices from cyberattacks!

posted in: Links, Tech | 0

“This lawsuit was the FTC’s stern message to other IoT manufacturers, and surely we will see more such lawsuits!”

There’s no question the FTC is paying attention to Internet of Things devices that claim to keep customer data secure, but actually don’t. The costs of being targeted by the FTC may put some of these companies under, frankly. That’s fine by me, these devices have so much data about our day to day lives, and can create so many problems when a hacker gains control of them, that companies not doing everything they can to make them secure probably should be out of business.
