CEDIA EXPO Course of the Day: IoT: Hackers, Attack Anatomy & Security Trends
Each day, we’re going to be featuring a specific CEDIA course that you can take at CEDIA EXPO in October.
Today’s entry is IoT: Hackers, Attack Anatomy & Security Trends, instructed by Geoff Gentry of Independent Security Evaluators.
As devices become increasingly connected, attacks against the Internet of Things are rampantly increasing. Some devices are purpose-built to be connected, while others were built for an analogue world and retrofitted to meet demand for connectivity. Both types introduce potentially catastrophic security implications if designed or implemented improperly. As malicious hackers advance their techniques at a staggering pace, often rendering current defense tactics obsolete, so too must security practitioners obsess over deploying progressive techniques. Presented by the elite organization of white hat hackers most widely known for being first to break the iPhone and more recently for their discovery of the vulnerability epidemic in wireless routers that connect many IoT devices, this class analyzes the anatomies of real world attacks against high profile systems, ranging from the well-known Target breach, to Texas Instruments RFID, to Apple products, and more.
The Class Number is EST038-1, it provides 1 Continuing Education Unit (CEU), and it takes place Wednesday, October 14, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.
A la carte, this course costs $105 for CEDIA members and $150 for non-members. However, CEDIA is offering the CEDIA Training Pass for $529, which gives you access to an unlimited number of training courses with the exception of certification exams, the Design Documents: Creating AV System Blueprint Drawings Workshop, and the CEDIA Outreach Instructor (COI) “Train the Trainer” Workshop.
