Skip to 0 minutes and 10 secondsWelcome to the final week. This week, we end our look at the balance between security, privacy, and usability by focusing on the connected home of the future, a future that is already very recognisable. Dr. Charles Morrisset looks at so-called smart devices that can control many aspects of domestic life; heating, shopping, even access to the home. What sort of threats are we exposed to? And are they actually any different from the old threats? Do we have to compromise our private data in order to gain security? We hope you've enjoyed the course.
