Privacy And Security Regulations Should Be Addressed Before Forging Ahead In Our Dream Of A Fully Connected Smart Home
With so many security and privacy concerns beings raised due to smart devices, what are some precautions we can take?
Companies are working neck to neck in a bid to outdo others and leaving privacy concerns behind in the race. Most companies tend to prioritize price, quality, and speed over security, which is an attitude that needs to change.
Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation is a great step forward. The US is also working towards the same goal with California recently passing a law requiring the IoT device manufacturers to have a feature that will protect user data. While there’s no huge fine involved in case of breach, it’s a start.
While rapidly developing legislature is working to protect users, the regulatory system just can’t keep up with the tech industry’s rate of innovation.
Social media validation is a big issue and one that comes with a risk to your privacy. Since IoT devices are more useful when they are part of an ecosystem, you might be giving the system more information than you want just to connect.
Apple is known to have the best privacy regulations so far followed by Google. Social platforms, such as Facebook need to work a lot more to induce a sense of security in its users.
