Is Internet of Things a bad thing? Interview with Brenno de Winter, speaker at IoT Event 2016

At the age of 5, de Winter wrote his first computer program. The opportunities and risks of ICT play a significant role in his career ever since. He is mostly known to the public by revealing the poor state of data protection in the Netherlands in unconventional ways (e.g. Lektober).

On June 7-8, 2016, during the 5th edition of the Internet of Things Event at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, de Winter will talk in his keynote about “Security and Internet of Things”. Continue reading “Is Internet of Things a bad thing? Interview with Brenno de Winter, speaker at IoT Event 2016”

AT&T report, Cybersecurity Insights: The CEO’s Guide to Securing the Internet of Things

The rapid rise of a new generation of connected, intelligent devices — collectively known as the Internet of Things or IoT — is more than just the latest digital disruption to impact businesses of all sizes. The IoT presents vast opportunities for organizations to improve internal efficiencies, serve customers better, enter new markets, and even build new business models.

More IoT devices are coming online each and every day. Through connected devices, health care is improving patient care; for example, a diabetic patient’s blood sugar level can now be monitored remotely, enabling a quick response to a possible life-threatening situation. Read more

“Vehicle Systems Security In The Connected World” – Presented by Vibhu Sharma, NXP Semiconductors

The modern connected car with varied communication interfaces both internal and external, 150 ECU’s and 100 MSLOC is an example of cyber physical system rather than a mechanical system. The negative side of the seamless connectivity to the internet is the full exposure to the malicious vulnerabilities such as buffer overflow exploits, Malware, Trojans etc. to vehicles. This presentation will go through the associated cyber-risks and will address possible way forward for ensuring the security of the car in the connected world.

“Rethinking Security for IoT” – Presented by Sandro Etalle, TU/e

It is evident that the IoT is going to be much more difficult to defend than standard computer systems, which are already no match for professional attackers. To cope with the security and privacy challenges of the IoT we need to completely rethink our way to address security issues. In this presentation I will illustrate my personal view on the road ahead.

Coming our way are houses run by networked kits. Will our homes be soon smarter than we are?

There is a technological juggernaut heading our way. It’s called the Internet of Things (IoT). For the tech industry, it’s the Next Big Thing, alongside big data, though in fact that pair are often just two sides of the same coin. The basic idea is that since computing devices are getting smaller and cheaper, and wireless network technology is becoming ubiquitous, it will soon be feasible to have trillions of tiny, networked computers embedded in everything. They can sense changes, turning things on and off, making decisions about whether to open a door or close a valve or order fresh supplies of milk, you name it, the computers communicating with one another and shipping data to server farms all over the place. Continue reading “Coming our way are houses run by networked kits. Will our homes be soon smarter than we are?”

IoT – Key to developing ‘hotbeds of innovation’

The EU has been urged to abandon the privacy rules ‘it is so hung up about’ because they are hampering technological innovation.

A Brussels conference on the future of the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Europe on Thursday heard from key industry figures on the emergence of an IoT ecosystem.

Wim de Waele, the CEO of Belgium’s Eggsplore who has been in the ICT business for almost 30 years, stressed the need to work on large-scale pilots to experiment with technology. Continue reading “IoT – Key to developing ‘hotbeds of innovation’”

Can intrusion-detection systems keep hackers from messing with your connected baby monitor and door lock?

There’s a smooth, dark brown stone sitting in front of me on the table with a bright circle pulsing on its face—a signal, apparently, about the security status of Yossi Atias’s fictional Internet-connected home.

Atias is the CEO and cofounder of an Israeli startup called Dojo-Labs, one of numerous companies trying to secure the so-called Internet of things. The stone is part of its first security product, Dojo; it gets alerts via low-energy Bluetooth from a white, rectangular device that plugs into your Wi-Fi router and monitors the network activity of Internet-connected home gadgets like smart lights, TV sets, and alarm systems.

Do End-Users Really Care about Industry 4.0?

Current discussion about Industry 4.0 revolves around three separate areas – Governments promoting manufacturing; suppliers promoting the concept because it provides a good sense of differentiation; and end users.

Speaking during a recent Frost & Sullivan hosted webinar, which focused on the Internet of Things (IoT) in the age of Industry 4.0, Karthik Sundaram, Frost & Sullivan industrial automation & Process control industry analyst, referred to research which found that a great deal of end users are still not clear about many of the areas that make up Industry 4.0.
