UK 2017: Keynote: IoT Legislation IS Coming. Can Manufacturers Get Their Act Tog

Presented by

Ken Munro, Partner and Founder, Pen Test Partners LLP

About this talk

The IoT has been described as the new Wild West as far as security is concerned, and with good reason. Many devices are brought to market without even the slightest nod to security, or privacy, for their owners. We’ll discuss the flaws in an array of products from We-Vibe, Cloud Pets, Bose, Roomba, and Genesis Toys (the makers of the My Friend Cayla doll). We’ll also show you how we hacked Cayla, and how she become the standard-bearer for a call to legislative change that led to her being banned in Germany. While live hacking demos are fun, the serious implications for IoT manufacturers will also be covered: What are reasonable security expectations? How can they be implemented, and who will actually benefit? 5 takeaways: A clear understanding of the current IoT security landscape Insights into the flaws in IoT devices that cause concern The reasons for the IoTs shabby security reputation How organisations and individuals can protect themselves Understanding the drivers for legislative change
