Jeffrey, John, John Abbott discussed on Recorded Future - Inside Threat Intelligence for Cyber Security


Could you just introduce yourself to us, please? Yes, ma'am. I'm John Abbott. And what do you do? John is having trouble telling me about himself because of Jeffrey. That's the very un podcast friendly rooster who keeps interrupting him. Jeffrey the rooster and John live on a farm in milledgeville, Georgia, population 17,000. It's about two hours southeast of Atlanta. And we've tested them to talk about a farm staple. The tractor.

In fact, as soon as he's a board, John pulls out his phone and fires up a nap to see how his tractor is doing. I can actually go on my app. And go to my live dashboard. And it will show me every time the trap nurse tell in the computer, the computer telling my book. It's telling him the outside temperature that is coolant is working. My field temperature, my fuel wobble, how much feel I'm consuming, how fast I'm going. Which on the one hand is kind of incredible to have all this information right there on your phone. But on the other hand, if all that is Bluetooth enabled and constantly connected to the Internet, well, someone can break into it. It's hackable. And if some bad actor got into the network, they all share. Well. If a hacker could come up with a
