"Hey Google, what's my schedule for today?" "Alexa, play Unforgettable by Nat King Cole." "Siri, what's the temperature outside?"

Our modern lives are filled with digital assistants from the Amazon Echo to Google Home and even Apple's recently announced HomePod product. Convenience is one thing, but what about them listening in all the time? Is there a security and/or privacy risk? Should you be worried?

This informative talk aims to relieve some anxiety and provide some guidance on modern technology within your home.
