So how do we secure our...home network, phone (any), personal details....?
My biggest complaint is about home network security....I see tons of articles stating that home users should secure their home networks, secure their IoT devices, set up their TVs on separate networks...I could go on but you get the idea....And nowhere is there an easy guide on how to do it. I perform google searches on these terms and either the search returns generic, high level statements or someone ranting on about how one way is better than another, but still is few details.
Eyes glaze over when you talk about details...I like the one comment - when you buy a car you expect it to work... You have a key to start it, you have a lock to lock it.You put in gas (and oil) to make it go.
I've seen home networks set up by supposed experts at big brand stores who have actually changed WPA2 AES security to WPS because it was "easier for the user". Threat vectors, firewall rules, separate networks, VPNs, SSID, DHCP all sound great but few home users know what to actually do to implement security for those terms. The best example I have come across was a neighbor who proudly told me he had purchased a router through his ISP and the customer support/service rep who had enabled the firewall on the device. He asked me to check the settings. The product rules were set to "allow all" with a SSID broadcasting the customer's name and with PING, Telnet, SSH, UPnP enabled, and remote access enabled for the ISP.
