Drone security

Drone security

The drones are upon us. The unmanned aerial vehicles are incredible tools for everyday use in a multitude of industries. With the massive production of sensors and technology required to produce drones, we are seeing constant reductions in price, improved features, and advancements of software almost daily. These machines are typically controlled with a remote controller or autonomously via GPS. There are thousands of potential uses for drones. However, the technology may also be a threat, both in being used premeditatedly to do harm to people or property; or being hijacked by for the purpose of theft or causing damage.

Insurance in the age of drones - The technologist

Robots are a technology developing at pace. We are living at a time when a confluence of technical advances – battery and power provision, computational ability and sensors – are allowing the rapid advance of robotics. Moreover, through continual self-optimisation, robots are able to become self-referential, and learn adaptively from their surroundings. Within a well-developed systems architecture, many robots can work collectively with each other on a common task. This collaboration is not centrally co-ordinated, it is the product of distributed autonomous intelligence.

Insurance in the age of drones - The hacker

Drones have the potential to do great good in society. Equally, in the wrong hands, they have significant potential to cause harm. Drones have already been used in illegal surveillance, both at an individual and an industrial level. They can be used in smuggling, and there have already been several cases to drugs being shipped into jails. They can be used in direct physical attacks, they can be used to intercept wireless signals and hack. There is a burgeoning industry developing in physically stopping rogue drones, from using birds of prey to flying nets.
