The Dark Side of Digital Revolution

The Dark Side of Digital Revolution
Click here to kill everybody: The dark side of the digital revolution is here.

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.

Please note that the talk is meant to address a general audience, non expert in IT and cybersecurity. Consequently, the talk will not cover technical details of cybersecurity attacks.
