Speaker Name: Marie Moe
Title: Breaking my own heart
Gradually we are all becoming more and more dependent on machines, we will be able to live longer with an increased quality of life due to machines integrated into our body. However, our dependence on technology grows faster than our ability to secure it, and a security failure of a medical device can have fatal consequences. This talk is about Marie’s personal experience with being the host of a vulnerable medical implant, and why she decided to start a hacking project on the security of her own personal critical infrastructure.
Marie Moe cares about public safety and securing systems that may impact human lives, this is why she has joined the grassroots organisation “I Am The Cavalry”. Marie is a research scientist at the independent research organisation SINTEF, and has a PhD in information security. She is currently doing research on the security of her own personal critical infrastructure, an implanted pacemaker that is generating every single beat of her heart. Marie loves to break crypto protocols, but gets angry when the weak crypto is in her own body.
