are increasingly targeting ‘internet of things’ devices to access corporate systems – everything from CCTV cameras to air-conditioning units.

The “internet of things” refers to devices that are hooked up to the internet to allow live streams of to be monitored. The term covers everything from household appliances to widgets in power plants and everything in between.

Nicole Eagan, the CEO of cybersecurity Darktrace, told the WSJ CEO Council in London on Thursday: “There’s a lot of internet of things devices, everything from thermostats, refrigeration systems, HVAC [air conditioning] systems, to people who bring in their Alexa devices into the offices. There’s just a lot of IoT. It expands the attack surface and most of this isn’t covered by traditional defenses.”

Eagan gave one memorable anecdote about a case Darktrace worked on where an unnamed casino was hacked via a in a aquarium.

“The attackers used that to get a foothold in the network. They then found the high-roller and then pulled that back across the network, out the thermostat, and up to the cloud,” she said.

Robert Hannigan, who ran the British government’s digital spying agency GCHQ from 2014 to 2017, appeared alongside Eagan on the panel and agreed that hackers targeting internet of things devices are a growing problem for companies.

“With the internet of things producing thousands of new devices shoved onto the internet over the next few years, that’s going to be an increasing problem,” Hannigan said. “I saw a bank that had been hacked through its CCTV cameras because these devices are bought purely on cost.”

He said regulation to mandate safety standards would likely be needed.

“It’s probably one area where there’ll likely need to be regulation for minimum standards because the market isn’t going to correct itself,” he said. “The problem is these devices still work. The fish or the CCTV camera still work.”
