Keynote 3: "Hacking Everything - The Dark Side of the Internet of Things"

Thursday, April 12 | 8:30 - 9:30 A.M

Jeff Crume, Distinguished Engineer and Master Inventor, IT Security Architect at IBM

With IoT, everything becomes a computer. The connectivity has opened up a world of possibilities for the security industry, with more to come in the not so distant future. But, this connectivity also means everything can be hacked - networks, cars, appliances, computers, tablets, and other devices - without our knowledge. If everyday items and networks are hacked, information about our habits and behaviors could be traceable to those with villainous goals. This session will offer examples of recent IoT hacks, the consequences of these breaches, and practical tips for installing cyber-secure systems as we utilize IoT for the next generation of innovative security products.
