About the masterclass

Keep hackers
from your
IoT products

This talk will give a security perspective on the ongoing Internet of Things revolution.

You will learn how hackers can control our life if we don’t seriously take security into consideration when developing IoT products.

The masterclass will be driven by a number of examples of real-life IoT devices from different domains, such as smart homes, smart medical systems, and robotics/AI.

Your hosts are Nicola Dragoni, professor, and Edlira Dushku, post-doc, DTU Compute.

Target audience

Who is it for?

The target audience is companies that build or use IoT systems or consider implementing IoT in their business. 

The masterclass targets a generic audience of professionals who want to get an introductory tutorial on IoT security.

The masterclass is therefore open to everybody and does not require any specific technical background in security and IT.


What's in it for you?

Key takeaways

After the masterclass, you will be able to:

  • Discuss why cybersecurity is crucial in the IoT era
  • Provide a number of examples of IoT devices that have recently been hacked
  • Discuss the main vulnerabilities of current IoT devices
  • Discuss some examples of key attacks on IoT devices

Learn from real-life cases

The rise in connectivity, digitalization and robotics, combined with the race for bringing artificial intelligence (AI) into every aspect of our daily life, are rapidly changing our society and shaping our future.

The Internet of Things brings computing capabilities into everyday objects – known as pervasive computing. In this technological and societal revolution, cybersecurity has been too neglected. From a security and privacy perspective, this tsunami of connectivity represents a potential disaster, as each smart object becomes inherently remotely hackable and, as a consequence, controllable by malicious actors.

For example, a hacked robot, industrial machine or smart home object can act as an insider threat in organisations, industries, public spaces, private homes – and even within our body (which could potentially kill someone).

At the masterclass, we present examples of real-life IoT devices from different domains, such as smart homes, smart medical systems, and robotics/AI.


CIDI – Cybersecure IoT in Danish Industry – is a strategic initiative launched by the Danish Industry Foundation. The purpose is to help Danish companies gain (and maintain) a competitive advantage on the market for smart products. CIDI is a partnership between the Alexandra Institute, FORCE Technology, DTU Compute and the IT University of Copenhagen.
