The International Federation of Robotics estimate that 2.6 million industrial robots will be installed in factories worldwide by 2019. Robots are not only in industrial environments, they also exist in homes and around us as toys, companions, assistants and serve various roles in our daily lives. In this session we will talk about our journey to secure our robots at scale. This talk will help a range of different audiences, including developers, testers, consumers and manufacturers, to understand the threats to their products and will guide developers and product builders towards building security from the start. We will talk about software, applications, operating systems, hardware and supply chain security challenges as well as our strategy to mitigate threats from the ground up. We will also look at some emerging and upcoming threats as they pertain to complex sensors and autonomous systems that make decisions based on ML / AI algorithms.
