The Internet Of Things is already here. Printers, Medical Devices, Cameras, Alarm systems; and more ALREADY connect to the network, and are Pwned. These systems typically are deployed and managed by people with little to no understanding of security, and are almost never patched. In this session we will show actual infections, and demonstrate protection that works for the Things on your network.

Speaker Bios

Tom Byrnes

Tom has been involved in the Internet and related technologies since he first logged on to ESANET in 1981. His involvement in network security started with misdirected curiosity then, but his subsequent experience in the US Army Signal Corps led him to the right side, where he has worked since.

Johannes Ullrich

Johannes is currently responsible for the SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC) and the GIAC Gold program. In 2000, he founded, which is now the data collection engine behind the ISC. His work with the ISC has been widely recognized, and in 2004, Network World named him one of the 50 most powerful people in the networking industry. Prior to working for SANS, Johannes worked as a lead support engineer for a web development company and as a research physicist. Johannes holds a PhD in physics from SUNY Albany and is based in Jacksonville, Florida. His daily podcast summarizes current security news in a concise format. Listen to Johannes discuss "HTML5: Risky Business or Hidden Security Tool Chest for Mobile Web App Authentication" in this SANS webcast.
