Dr Joseph Ikhalia proposes solutions to the latest security risks posed by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) – commonly known as drones – at London’s Commercial UAV Show November 2019, the largest one in Europe. Dr Ikhalia highlights UAV’s security risks and recommends strategic IT and government policies.
As a cybersecurity trainer and speaker, Dr Ikhalia shares his views on the uprising dangers of drones: “Most people don’t realize that drones work like a computer, and as such, they can be hacked and used for malicious acts, from stealing sensible data to carrying out cyber and terrorist attacks.”
Dr Ikhalia believes that by identifying the drones’ weak operating systems, it is possible to implement efficient hack-proof structures.
“However, it’s not just a question of adding an antivirus but to also train the Government, businesses and the public on how to respond to a drone security breach,” adds Dr Ikhalia.
Dr Ikhalia concludes that new security policies must include a national capability to detect and defeat UAV threats. This includes enabling law enforcement agencies to investigate and respond to UAV hacks, updating Government contingency plans, and ensuring that the critical national infrastructure is robust and able to respond and recover from drone strikes.
The UAV Commercial Show was held on 12-13 November 2019. Dr Ikhalia was a guest speaker amongst other leading experts in security, urban innovation and control systems.
