From Hype Hangover to Happy Hacking: Shaping the World through Shaping Actions
Recent security research on cars and medical devices have left us with a hangover. As the media hype dies down, the publicity bubble is replaced by a vacuum that calls for action. In the absence of a clear, technically literate direction, opportunists and agendas have the opportunity to crowd out true solutions. That is not the legacy security research should leave.
Where security research can affect life and safety, we must stop admiring the problems and work to fix them. We must become ambassadors for our tribe. We must cultivate willing allies among other stakeholders. We must catalyze positive, proactive results where they matter most.
