Industrial IoT (IIoT) - What are the biggest threats and how are you dealing with them? Take the SANS Industrial IoT Survey and enter to win a $400 Amazon gift card.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is all around us, making our lives more convenient. We've seen IoT devices being taken over to conduct DDoS attacks, but could an IoT device be re-purposed to physically attack an unsuspecting user? In this talk, Billy Rios will describe how he discovered vulnerabilities in the control system for an automated car wash. They demonstrate how an attacker could exploit the vulnerabilities to override software safety mechanisms and make the car wash physically damage vehicles and injure people.

To learn more on this topic, join SANS for the 13th annual ICS Security Summit & Training, March 19-26 in Orlando. The two-day Summit (March 19-20) will bring together in-the-field practitioners and leading experts from a variety of industries to share ideas, methods, and techniques to help answer the question 'Who is in control of your control system? ' and to ensure that the answer is 'You are! ' Summit presentations and speakers are carefully curated by the Summit Advisory Board with the goal of having attendees walk away from their Summit experience with actionable content that can be utilized immediately upon returning to the field.
