Video: Are your smart devices leaving you vulnerable to cyberattacks?

This video will examine some of the strategies and framework developed by the U.S. Government that can help improve the trustworthiness and resiliency the digital Wild West.

Using malicious code, a hacker may use a number of IoT devices as part of a botnet to mask themselves and to use the power of multiple systems to launch an attack. In effect, they weaponize your IoT devices. Now complex software allows hackers to perform these attacks using machine learning and augmented intelligence without direct involvement. At this moment a great many of the over 10 billion currently connected devices have either default passwords or are directly connected without security as most homeowners, tradespeople, installers, vendors and OEM salespeople are untrained and unaware of the consequences.

This presentation from the "Road to RxM" track at Smart Industry 2018 explores the impact of the known weakest point in our cyber-defenses: the IoT device. Presented by Howard W Penrose, Ph.D., CMRP, 2018 Chair of the SMRP, this video clip will examine some of the strategies and the framework developed by the U.S. government that can improve the trustworthiness and resiliency in the digital Wild West.
