Title: Cyber Threats for systems with the IoT

Abstract:The IoT is now an increasing part of all systems engineering and for complex systems, they need this to operate and integrate fully. It is argued in this presentation that as well as advantages, it also introduces disadvantages and in particular, how cyber threats are greater problems. New systems need the security protection designed in at concept. Older systems offer different challenges and that to have stealth within critical infrastructures is now a fundamental aspect.
