02 Mar 70 Percent of Americans Fear Hacking Via Smart Devices
A new survey from global managed services provider iQor showed that two-thirds of American consumers are still concerned about the security risks posed by smart home devices.
It was established that baby boomers are 17% more concerned about hacking risks, compared to millenials who have grown up sharing relatively more information about themselves on social media.
iQor COO Autumn Braswell explains that it is not so much a case of one generation being more open to smart home technology, but rather the priorities around such products and how each generation perceives the value of those solutions. She added that the lack of common protocols and standards with regards to device security contributes to the elevation of fears within the market.
