Track 1.1 - Security Issues: Application Security and the Internet of Things


With the IoT, we must ask ourselves where traditional security begins and logical security ends. With the generational shift in the use of technology such as vast use of mobile and wearables devices, as attackers and adversaries become more sophisticated in their efforts, we are increasingly seeing exploits that involve both traditional and logical attack vectors. Fewer and fewer people understand how all of this works. How do they work together – what are the devices doing, collecting, and transmitting what to whom. In a sentence, technology is being adopted faster than our ability to secure it.
