The rise of connectivity and digitalization, combined with the race for bringing artificial intelligence into every aspect of our daily life, is rapidly changing our society and shaping its future development. In particular, the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution is creating a world in which everyday objects are connected to the Internet, making computing pervasive like never before. In this technological and societal revolution, cybersecurity has dramatically been too neglected, exposing society to a potential safety (life-threatening) and security disaster. This seminar will give a security perspective on the ongoing digital revolution, showing how hackers can control our life if we don’t urgently take cybersecurity seriously into consideration.
