Title of my presentation: Internet of Things Cyber
Attacks: A Comprehensive Study.
Abstract: "The first IoT security attacks began in 2016
and where it brought down the Internet. In this
presentation, we will discuss a comprehensive study on
the set of IoT-enabled cyber-attacks identified in the
last four years and we will present various lessons
learned and mitigation strategies."
