TED is a non-profit organization which organizes and hosts a variety of speakers from all walks of life. Recently, TED hosted a series of talks called “The Dark Side of Data.” In Part 1 of our series we reviewed online privacy, and in Part 2, we reviewed three types of online attacks.
Today’s final installment of our 3-part series investigates Avi Rubin’s talk about smart device hacking — phones, refrigerators, and even pacemakers can be hacked. Rubin is a professor of computer science and director of Health and Medical Security at Johns Hopkins. He works on computer and information security, with a focus on electronic medical records.
