Police warning on IoT

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-07-26
IoT appliances are an insecure back door into peoples’ networks, says the Chief Constable of Durham, Mike Barton, who heads up the National Police Chiefs Council on crime operations (pictured).

“You’ve got a situation where we don’t know what the security is like in the devices we are buying in the internet of things,’ says Barton, “it’s just not reported. And yet that is the most significant component of what it is you are buying.”

Televisions, fridges, remotely switched electric  plugs and other internet-connected home appliances should carry cyber security ratings, says Barton.

“Your internet of things are all plugged into the same network,” says Barton, “that is a back door into your network.”

“We are in the foothills of the internet of things, it is easier now to create something like this than it will be in 10 years’ time when there would be tens of millions of products,” adds Barton, ““I don’t want to look back and be accused of not actually waving a flag to say we should be doing more.”
