Hacking Robots Before Skynet

IOActive invites you to the May edition of HACK::SOHO, a monthly event at our central London office. Join fellow hackers, tech heads, enthusiasts, and visionaries for food, cold beer, and hot cybersecurity talk.

This edition will take place on Thursday the 24th of May and features Lucas Apa, Senior Security Consultant at IOActive, entrepreneur, and professional hacker.


Lucas’ security research and ideas have been presented at world-renowned security conferences including Black Hat USA, PacSec Japan, POC Korea, Zero Nights Russia, Black Hat Europe, HITB Singapore, Ekoparty, Troopers, Kaspersky SAS, AppSec USA, SecTor, and EnergySec. His technical work and opinions have been featured in media outlets such as The New York Times, Reuters, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, CNN, CNBC, Financial Times, FOX, VICE, and many more. He is currently based in Argentina and regularly appears on local media as a commentator and security analyst.


In the very near future, robots will be everywhere; on military missions, performing surgery, building skyscrapers, assisting customers at stores, as healthcare attendants, as business assistants, as sex partners, cooking in homes, and interacting with our families.


During this edition of HACK::SOHO, Lucas will delight us with a talk about his recent research on robots from well-known vendors. While remotely presenting “Hacking Robots Before Skynet,” Lucas will:

  • Reveal all the technical details, threats, and how attackers can compromise robot ecosystem components with practical exploits
  • Showcase exploitation scenarios that involve cyber espionage
  • Show harmful insider threats, property damage, and more


Engage in the discussion with Lucas, ask questions, learn new things, and network, all while enjoying drinks and music.
