# IoT Security
These days there is a device or an app for almost anything you can think of. There are smart crock pots, refrigerators, speakers, home assistants, and even toilets.
The devices are often designed to be simple to connect and use to make it easier for the consumer. Unfortunately, the convenience sometimes comes with a security price. Most organizations restrict unknown computers from connecting to their network. Most organizations restrict employees from being able to install applications on their work stations. Yet what is to stop the crock pot someone brought from home for luncheon from trying to connect to the wireless network or blue tooth phones in the area? These devices have been known to have more built in features and connection ability then advertised. All IoT devices are not bad, but they need to be reviewed for risks before they are added to corporate environments.
