This project focuses on Smart Technologies because we are on the cusp of a paradigm shift in terms of adopting smart technology without fully understanding the risks associated with it.  Today everything is becoming more reliant on smart technology. From a cyber security standpoint, deciphering what is possible to ethically hack makes this interesting subject matter.

The target audience for this project is smart technology users, many of whom don't know the risks they are creating by bringing this technology into their home. While the integration of smart technology into the home may make life 'easier', this easiness comes with an incalculable number of risks. This project shows how smart technology can be hacked, the actions a hacker can perform after breaching the smart devices basic security features and how to prevent these hacks so other users will know how they can protect their devices and avoid being exploited by hackers.

In order to meet the goals for the project it was important to determine the best method for hacking into a smart device and then putting this method into practice as well as implementing security measures afterwards which allowed me to demonstrate how to stop the hack from occurring again. Determining the best method of hacking smart devices was achieved by researching common methods and testing demonstrations and tutorials on ethical hacking available on LinkedIn pages, ethical hacking forums online and YouTube.
