Our smart future and the threat of cyber-kinetic attacks

Our lives increasingly revolve around Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSes) such as the Internet of Things (IoT) which integrate computational devices into an increasing range of everyday physical objects and even biological systems. With the spread of connected devices through all aspects of daily life comes increased vulnerability. These devices are designed to communicate and, as such, can potentially be compromised through cyber-kinetic attacks.

Read more about why the continued growth of CPSes as an integral part of our physical well-being forces not only security professionals, but all stakeholders in our journey into a highly connected world to rethink traditional security concepts and solutions on Help Net Security.
