Robots are no longer safe unless they are secure - It’s time to work together to secure our robotics ecosystem

In an effort to enable and improve efficiencies, organizations continue to push towards digitization of work processes, systems and equipment. Robotics has been at the forefront of digitalization, with connected robots making up the vast majority of the market. Unfortunately, with this increase in digitalization also comes an increased exposure to threats posed by bad actors. These systems can be unintentionally left unprotected and subsequently made an easy target for hackers.

Taking a collaborative approach in developing and implementing robotics is imperative to ensure safety and security. Within a complex robotic ecosystem, there are multiple parties that have ownership of ensuring security and safety. Understanding the role of the manufacturer, implementor and operator in this effort is critical to address the risks caused by continued digitization and increasing exposure. In this topic, we will discuss methods that would-be attackers use to compromise robotic systems as well as why collaboration between these roles is vital to design, build and deploy secure robot systems.
Participants will learn:
  • Common vulnerabilities in robotic systems
  • Attack vectors used by malicious actors
  • Collaborative defense strategies for manufacturers, implementors & operators
