Hacking and the Internet of Things

Event Website

One of the most likely targets of cyberattacks in the digital age is the “Internet of Things” (IoT)—everyday objects that run through internet connections. Pacemakers, vehicles, and appliances are all at risk of being hacked at home and abroad. Panelists discuss the national security risks posed by corruption of IoT devices and ways to mitigate the probability of successful attacks.
