IoT and the Physically Dangerous

Cyber Hack Theatre

Wed 18th Oct 11:00 to 12:00

IoT devices and outdated software are being used globally in ways that can create physical threats for consumers. Many see this as little more than a small risk and a consumer inconvenience. This session will focus on one particular vulnerability and a suite of HVAC and ICS products that are in use everywhere from schools to nursing homes and why these physically dangerous vulnerabilities are not getting the attention they deserve.

What you will take away from this session

  • Some IoT devices are more dangerous than others due to the devices intended use
  • Security-focused vendors are the exception
  • The security risk of these devices is not limited to any particular market sector
  • The only way to win is to not play
