We’ll talk to one member of an international team of researchers who showed that, yes they can. And Fractional CISO Rob Black joins us to talk about Internet of Things security standards. With so many to choose from, will we ever see “one standard to rule them all”? Bad vibrations: sonic attacks could crash hard drives In the information security space, most of the ‘bad stuff’ we talk- and write about concerns attacks on software. SQL injection, buffer overflows, cross site scripting attacks – all seek to subvert the proper operation of software and applications. But what about the hardware that software runs on top of? Isn’t that also vulnerable? We know, of course, about … Continue reading Episode 98: using Physics to crash hard drives and making sense of IoT standards
