- Household IoT devices face an ever-increasing risk without proper security
- Hackers compromise IoT devices and integrate them into botnets responsible for major DDoS attacks
- ISPs can do much more to protect their customers and infrastructure
IoT makes people's lives more comfortable, but for all the good it does, it's also a prime target for botnets and threat actors. Compromised IoT devices launch DDoS attacks against online services, companies, or even people. There's an entire industry built around the DDoS-as-a-Service principle, and the potential victims don't have many options for protection. A possible solution lies in the hands of ISPs when they choose to provide IoT security to their customers.
