Re: Scary not Cool
Agreed -- those hacks highlight the potential for harm in some otherwise cool ideas. Security needs to be more of a priority.

Re: Scary not Cool
I had a conversation with some folks a few years ago about how easy it is to control the computer systems of modern vehicles.  It took a funny turn because they jokingly called me a conspiracy theorist.   Now that we're seeing more proof of concept attacks against vehicles it really is a bit frightening.  My biggest concern at the time when we were talking about it was a local garage doing things like sitting at a street corner and turning on check engine lights hoping to increase business but now I wonder about things like insurance scams and personal injury lawsuits.

Scary not Cool
I'm not sure I'd say they are "cool."  They are scary in that as we computerize and make everything wireless, we are not paying enough attention to security.  It was bad enough to have my computer hacked.  Now it just gets worse.  Getting killed as youe car gets hacked, environmental disasters causes by hacking, ships running aground caused by hacking – sounds like a disaster movie on the SyFy channel.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
