TITLE: The Internet is on fire – Don't just stand there, grab a bucket!
ABSTRACT: The Internet is on fire. The network connected services and devices that makesup our modern, digital infrastructure and lives are under attack, and they are so vulnerable that the attackers are having a field day. To quote Melissa Hathaway, "we have put every critical system on the backbone of the Internet, but the Internet wasn't ready". This needs to change, and you need to be part of the solution.
