Consumers need better home network security guidance for taking stock of the hardware and software applications installed on their network and devices. The primary sources of information security advice for the average person are TV, magazines, newspapers, websites and social media. Unfortunately, these sources typically repeat the same advice, provide limited guidance and miss key areas of security that should be taken into consideration when securing home networks. On the other hand, enterprises receive comprehensive, prioritized guidance such as the Critical Security Controls from The Center for Internet Security. Unfortunately, these controls were not designed with securing home networks in mind. The wide gap between consumer-media advice columns and highly professional corporate security controls needs to be bridged. This can be done by using the Critical Security Controls as a comprehensive foundation from which to craft an authoritative yet easy-to-understand set of home network security recommendations for individuals. The first step is distilling the guidance for inventorying hardware and software applications.
