With the digital revolution comes a need for protection. Devices can be infected with viruses even when turned off! Here we find out how to protect your smart home with smart security

Let’s face it, with the wider availability of high-speed broadband direct to our homes our internet connections are now a major factor in our daily lives. Today our laptops and tablets are probably never switched off and with the arrival of web-based security systems, internet connected fridges and smart TVs, we are truly living in a digital world.

While this technology revolution offer us access to life-enriching experiences that are transforming the way we communicate, consume media, shop and even control our home environment, we sometimes forget, or maybe didn’t realise in the first place, that we may also be inadvertently opening ourselves up to an army of sophisticated hackers who can steal our identities, access our bank accounts and take control of our smart devices, even when they are switched off!
