Episode 10: Hack my (hard-coded) heart

Episode 10: Hack my (hard-coded) heart

In this episode, we chat with the former Head of the SOC at the Norwegian National CERT, and current member of mnemonic’s Threat Intelligence team. She also happens to have a personal interest in the "Internet of Things" and medical devices. 

In 2011, Marie Moe received a pacemaker to help her heart maintain a consistent beat. As a security researcher, she felt the need to do her homework and figure out everything she could about the device that had newly been introduced to her body. What she found prompted her to join the "I Am The Cavalry" group,  an organisation focusing on the impact computer security has on public safety and human life, which since then has lead a revolution in the medical device industry.
