Everything seems to be connected to the Internet these days, from our watches to our fridges to our cars. There are even internet-connected guns. But security is often overlooked in our quest for more features, leaving us vulnerable to hackers. Avi Rubin shares some scary stories of our devices being hacked, and tells us what we need to do to protect ourselves.

Dr. Aviel (Avi) D. Rubin is Professor of Computer Science and Technical Director of the Information Security Institute at Johns Hopkins University. He is also the Director of the JHU Health and Medical Security Lab. Prior to joining Hopkins, Rubin was a research scientist at AT&T Labs. He testified about information security before the U.S. House and Senate on multiple occasions, and he is the author of several books about computer security.
