In recognition of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) is once again hosting Security Awareness Day. Paul Asadoorian, Product Marketing Manager for Nessus, also the founder and CEO of SecurityWeekly.com, will lead a general session at 9:30 he’s calling, “The Internet of Evil Things: The 10 Most Wanted List.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) aims to makes our lives better, yet there is still no foundation for security controls on the devices that allow us to access the Internet, listen to music, watch television, control the temperature in our homes and more. This talk will look at the history of embedded device insecurity. We’ll explore some real-world example of how devices are exploited (and attackers profited). You will also learn what we can do to help fix these problems and push the industry for a much higher level of security for devices affecting our daily lives.
