Here’s a hypothetical scenario. You consider yourself a model user in all matters of cybersecurity. You have an active, updated antivirus solution with a strong firewall, your operating system is patched with the latest updates and you run scans regularly to ensure that you’re never at risk. You also follow proper cybersecurity hygiene by maintaining strong (& different) passwords on all accounts and not sharing them everywhere.
Yet, one fine day, you get alerts for unauthorized access to your e-mail inbox and see unrecognized activity. It becomes quite clear that you have been the victim of a cyberattack. But how could something like this happen? Aren’t you on top of everything? The answer may lie in the humble router you use to access the Internet.
Routers – surprisingly dangerous
As we have discussed on the blog previously, we often underestimate the power of the router. As a central point for all your connected devices to connect to the wider world, the router is an extremely crucial device considering the fact that all sensitive data runs through it.
Router security becomes even more important when you consider the number of connected devices in most households nowadays. The average home may have multiple Smart TVs, gaming consoles, household appliances and cell phones which all use the router as a gateway to the Internet. If a malicious threat actor can intercept the router’s network or even hijack it, they may have access to all the data that is flowing from these multiple devices.
Does this seem threatening? If so, you should consider getting a secure Wi-Fi router that can protect all the connected devices in your house.
