  • Meridith Ebbs (iMerinet): Great ideas! It is also an opportunity to consider cyber safety and consider security of home networks and the risks of IoT devices If home automation isn’t secure it creates an access point to your home network for hackers. Low risk at the moment. Massive risk for big business if they use automated appliances. – David Braue – Author – CSO | The Resource for Data Security Executives
  • Meridith Ebbs (iMerinet): Another opportunity could be to have a look at the school server and the blue wires. Find devices in the school that have blue wires which means they are attached to the server. Eg: photocopier, desktops. Can kids think how they are all connected where are the blue wires going to and from and how?
