I strongly recommend reading the PDF.

I see that Russia is encouraging its hackers to target UK IOT devices as they have no user accessible passwords.

Devices include fridges and smart meters.

I'll never have a so-called smart meter. On my recent visit to the US I brought back an Amazon Echo Dot, an impulsive purchase bought because it was half the price of the UK version. I've noticed recently that it suddenly without warning starts talking based on something I've said earlier, it's as though it's listening to everything I'm saying. Spooky, I'm thinking of getting rid of it.

Exactly.

There are countless reports of targeted advertising based on a family discussion that these things must broadcast.

I even go through my Android permissions list and remove all permissions for the microphone and certain other apps that have dubious requirements for 'contacts' and the like.
