Abstract: The miniaturization of processing power and the economics of storage have made software completely ubiquitous. The omnipresent cloud and high-bandwidth mobile networks have become standard, even in so-called developing countries. Smart things are everywhere, in our phones, our cars, our TVs and even our refrigerators. The modern state of technology has drastically increased the attack surface for malicious actors. The number and severity of attacks has increased manifold as well.
