Join La French Tech SF and the Consulate General of France in San Francisco for an experts panel on the security of IoT
The security of the Internet of Things (IoT) is a major concern as devices become increasingly prevalent in our daily lives. They are often connected to the internet, and their lack of security can leave them vulnerable to cyber-attacks. These attacks can result in personal information theft, network breaches, and even physical harm. To mitigate these risks, IoT devices should be designed with security in mind, and users should take steps to secure their devices by implementing strong passwords, keeping software up to date, and regularly monitoring their network for suspicious activity.
From spying air balloons to hacked home security cameras, security is the focus of all attention with a growing number of connected devices. The Internet of Things is all about bringing connectivity to all types of devices: smart meters, payment terminals, security cameras, kids trackers, wearable medical equipment, and critical infrastructure monitoring systems… all being potential targets for hackers.
What are the actual risks? What objects are the most likely targets? What types of attacks? What can be done to limit the risks?
A panel of expert speakers will share their insights and expertise on the latest trends, challenges, and solutions in this critical area of cybersecurity.
