Future Crimes From the Digital Underworld

Saturday, March 14
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon 4
110 E 2nd St

Criminals are often the earliest--and most innovative--adopters of technology. They're already stealing identities, draining online bank-accounts and wiping out computer servers in the blink of an eye, but that's child's play compared to what's coming next. It's disturbingly easy to activate baby cam monitors to spy on families, pacemakers can be hacked to deliver a lethal jolt of electricity, and thieves are analyzing your social media in order to determine the best time for a home invasion. Meanwhile, 3D printers produce AK-47s, terrorists can download the recipe for the Ebola virus, and drug cartels are building their own drones.

From one of the world's leading authorities on global security, Future Crimes takes readers deep into the digital underground to illuminate the alarming ways criminals, corporations and even countries are using new and emerging technologies against you--and how this makes everyone more vulnerable than ever thought possible.
