The cloud is already considered a security nightmare; all sorts of threats live on the open internet. Surely your IoT device sitting behind your home firewall is safe right? Because it’s not directly connected to the Internet, right? You’d be surprised how many terrible practices are followed in the IoT world. This seminar will cover the dos and don’ts of an IoT implementation from the security side of things.

Security Researcher, @terriko

Terri has a PhD in horribleness, assuming we can all agree that web security is kind of horrible. She stopped working on skynet (err, automated program repair and AI) before robots from the future came to kill her and got a job in open source, which at least sounds safer. Now, she gets paid to break things and tell people they’re wrong, and maybe help fix things so that people won’t agree so readily with the first sentence of this bio in the future. She doesn’t get paid for her work on GNU Mailman nor running Google Summer of Code for the Python Software Foundation, but she does those things too.
