Build a Secure Cyberspace 2017 – “Smart Home, Safe Living” Seminar

Build a Secure Cyberspace 2017 – “Smart Home, Safe Living” Seminar

Nowadays, many household appliances, such as surveillance cameras and robot vacuum cleaners, as well as cars, are smart enough to be controlled and monitored over the Internet. This not only facilitates daily activities, but also enables smart living. However, while we are enjoying the convenience and comfort brought about by the smart living environment, new attack surfaces have emerged. Our living is now as exposed as ordinary computer devices to cyber attacks. Without proper security measures in place, smart home devices and cars can get infected with malware and even be fallen into hackers’ control

In this seminar, information security experts share their experiences on the subject. By raising the awareness and understanding of the threats, businesses and individuals can better prepare for the safe and smart living. The seminar is also one of the events under the International IT Fest 2017.
