DDoS was not done by IoT consumers
 

When we start listing course of action that IoT consumers should be taking to prevent from a DDoS attack I know we are not close to a solution.

Step 1: Hilarious!
"Consumers need to protect their IoT devices the same way they would their smartphones, tablets and home computers."

But they already do! That's the problem.

Actually, that's not the problem. The problem is that we've accepted shitty security for too long and blame the end user. It's not the user's fault, it's the vendor's. It seems that security isn't even a consideration for them. It's all about ease of use.

I'm sorry, you can't just say, "stupid user, when you get this new web cam, you're going to have to telnet or maybe ssh into it and change the root password. It's hidden and there are no instructions but you has the googles so you can do it! I'm sure."

No, the vendor needs to fix that.

...Preventing IoT Hacks
Cyber security profession is and has been so enamoured by the cool and cutting edge technology things that can be deployed to technically fortify the enterprise or cloud assets that they tend to leave behind the most important aspect, the people/consumer aspect of cyber security every single time, for, it ain't as sexy as geeking out in some cool looking data center devices.

Individual users of internet, which includes everyone, your five year old, your grandma and adults who are PhDs or high school drop outs are involved and active stakeholders as smartphone, laptop or IoT users and can very seriously impact cyber defenses of shared infrastructure, examples of which we have seen recently.

Basic internet protection education should be part of elementary school education.
