About this event

Dealing with the Internet of Insecure Things
Dr. Arosha K. Bandara, Open University
We are in an age of the ‘Internet of Everything’ where boundaries between citizens,
governments, media, and societal organisations are becoming increasingly fuzzy as
interconnected digital devices enable the collection and exchange of vast amounts of
information across the globe. The availability of data gathered by these devices, coupled
with advances in channels of digitally mediated communication, have created a host of new
systems that are embedded into a range of human activities, including agriculture, energy,
transportation, healthcare, policing, and education – creating the potential for a
‘smarter planet’. However, these cyber-physical, socio-technical systems also open the door
to new threats from a range of sources, from attackers with malicious intent to opportunists
exploiting vulnerabilities in systems to cause deliberate or accidental harm.
This talk will provide an overview of the challenges created by this ‘Internet of Insecure
Things’ and discuss some of the approaches for addressing these challenges.


This event is free of charge and open to all, with refreshments at 19.00, lecture at 19:30.
