The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming more and more ubiquitous in our lives – at the workplace, in our homes, and in public places.

Many of these IoT devices have been developed with security as an afterthought, based on hardware that is already outdated when it is released. The devices are increasingly interesting for attackers as points-of-entry into networks and other computing infrastructure.

Many IoT devices also contain sensors that capture data, such as private audio and video data, and movement and other behavioral patterns, that should not fall into the hands of unauthorized parties. Data captured or generated by IoT devices is in many cases sent to and processed by cloud service providers, without the complete knowledge of the end users.

In this interactive lunch session we will look at what the consequences of insecure IoT devices may be, and what can be done to improve their security and trustworthiness.
