This demonstration will show how your mobile phone can reveal your daily habits, how data collected by IoT devices and stored in the cloud can be accessed and used to manipulate the end device, and how IoT in our homes can be used to eavesdrop on us. This personal data dripfeed of information is growing and is liable to lead to a rise in ransomware or the hijacking of devices. Ken Munro will deliver a practical hacking demonstration showing the breadth and scale of the data leakage now happening as well as advice for users on how to stem this flow of information.
