You’ve probably heard the hype: 

IoT is the next frontier in the information revolution that promises to make all our lives easier…

And that’s doubly true for hackers.


In this episode, I’m joined by Joe Grand, also known as Kingpin,  a computer engineer, hardware hacker, product designer, teacher, advisor, daddy, honorary doctor, TV host, member of legendary hacker group L0pht Heavy Industries, proprietor of Grand Idea Studio (, and partner in, a cryptocurrency wallet recovery service. He has been creating, exploring, and manipulating electronic systems since the 1980s and is here to take a look at the vulnerabilities hackers exploit in IoT (and how you can defend against them). 


Join us as we discuss:

  • Why, despite what many believe, hardware is no less vulnerable than software
  • The common vulnerabilities in IoT devices and what you can do about them
  • How security standards factor into IoT security
