We'll focus on the potential exploitation of vulnerabilities in connected medical devices and genetic information by nation-states in order to achieve strategic goals. An attack on a medical device would likely involve a single target, while DNA manipulation would involve larger groups. Both scenarios would likely occur within the context of a campaign involving the use of deep fakes and other disinformation.
We believe that these tactics will be increasingly adopted by nation-state proxies, organized criminals and terrorists. We'll discuss our research into the technical and legal aspects of, as well as mitigations to, this grave and under-explored area. Our hope is that organizations of all types and sizes will be better equipped to confront these non-traditional and emerging threats.
