Security and Privacy in the IoT
Speaker: Lisa Bock
Every day consumers and businesses purchase home appliances, electronics, sensors and other Internet of Things (IoT), to connect and simplify their lives. Billions of IoT devices are in use around the world, however, many security vulnerabilities exist, and hackers are finding ways to use IoT devices in various types of attacks. In this presentation, learn how something as innocent as a camera or a baby monitor can invade your privacy or be a part of a massive DDoS.  We’ll review case studies of how inexpensive IoT devices have minimal security configurations, and, when connected, immediately phone home. Participants will have a better understanding of IoT vulnerabilities and will conduct research and testing prior to implementation in a home or business.
