How to prevent robots from getting hacked

From driverless cars to robotic surgeries, here’s how governments can secure their future.

A ransomware attack last year shut down San Francisco’s metro train ticketing systems. Over 2,000 computers used to run the city’s transport system were hacked. Thankfully, the agency had backed up its data so it didn’t have to pay a ransom. Today, cars, medical devices and farming equipment could all be controlled by robots. An attack could threaten citizens’ lives and their trust in government. A new report by Microsoft shows how governments can prepare for such connected systems. This report shows what role the government plays in making this work, how it should build trust in these systems and how it can work with the industry.
