How to Improve IoT Device Security

Here’s Bryson’s take on minimizing IoT risk everywhere:

What can we do to make ourselves safer at home? Well, the same thing as the enterprise, which is 90% of security - configuration management. What do I have at home? What are those devices? Where are those devices? Then use the same process as with the enterprise - at a level of virtual segmentation so that it's not as easy for an attacker to come in and hack into everything in your home.
