Why governments must take the lead on IoT security frameworks
In my latest opinion piece on IoT Agenda “Why governments must take the lead on IoT security frameworks” I argue that there needs to be more government involvement when it comes to IoT security. At least until the industry more broadly accepts that IoT security, if done right, can become a competitive advantage and even speed up innovation.
My article "Defeating 21st Century pirates: the maritime industry and cyberattacks" was published on CSO Online. From the article: Digitization in the maritime industry is growing, and cyberattacks are growing along with it. Attackers achieve massive paydays when maritime targets leave vulnerabilities open. If the maritime industry is to enjoy the potential that digitization can bring, it must put cybersecurity in the forefront instead of on the back burner.
Cyber Kinetic Threat
My article "The tangible threat of cyber-kinetic attacks" was published on CSO Online. Connecting physical objects and processes to the cyber world offers us capabilities that exponentially exceed the expectations of science fiction writers and futurists of past generations. But it also introduces disquieting possibilities. Those possibilities reach beyond cyberspace to threaten the physical world in which we live and – potentially – our own physical well-being.
Smart Future and Cyber-Kinetic Threat
My article "Our smart future and the threat of cyber-kinetic attacks" is published on HelpNetSecurity. Like most of my writing, the article focuses on cyber-kinetic threats of industrial control systems and how the rapid adoption of IoT keeps exponentially increasing the threat.
Protecting smart technologies and IoT from cyber-kinetic attacks
My article "Protecting smart technologies and IoT from cyber-kinetic attacks" is published on IoT Agenda. The article highlights the cyber-kinetic threats of the IoT. From the article intro: "Making physical objects or systems “smart” is all the rage today. Terms like smart houses, smart cars, smart cities, smart grids, smart refrigerators and even smart hairbrushes pop up everywhere. But there’s something not smart in the way this trend is progressing. Securing smart systems is being often overlooked."
