Attacking and Defending the Internet of Things (IoT)


November Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) mtg

DATE: November 27, 2018
Time: 6pm to 8pm
Place: St. Petersburg Yacht Club
Address: 11 Central Ave, St. Petersburg, FL 33701
REGISTER: Email RAS Chair Sean Denny at [masked] by November 23, 2018.
COST: $20.00 per person to cover the dinner.
PARKING: Parking per car will be a cheaper option at $7.00 per car and the club will provide it. Attendees will just drive up to the parking attendant and leave their car with him indicating that they will come for the IEEE/RAS-CONSULTANTS NETWORK event. Entrance to the Club garage is at the corner of Central Avenue and Beach Drive.
Just a clarification on the attached message below about the parking.
The club will provide the parking but you will have to pay $7.00 upon arrival at the reception desk. This a better option than driving around the area and having to run out every hour to feed the meter. You should consider sharing a ride since the fee is per car so you can fill up your vehicle with people for $7.00 parking fee.

Description: Today’s world depends on fully functioning, interconnected Microprocessor Controlled Devices (MCD). The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of MCDs that in one way or another connect to the Internet. Unfortunately, many of them were never designed to be secure, especially in an IoT environment. Cyber attackers know this and have been aggressively compromising these devices for years. Recently, cybersecurity organizations have been tracking cyber attackers as they identify, infect, and build botnets made from MCD/IoT devices. This hunt has developed sizable IoT botnets that have the capability to launch globally destructive attacks. These attacks can significantly impact industry and critical infrastructure because of IoT’s presence within power systems, transportation systems, airport monitors, emergency warning systems, financial systems and security cameras. I will explore the cyber actors behind these attacks, their targets, their attack methods, and the types of devices impacted. We also can discuss ways to start protecting yourself and your businesses.
