Kennesaw State researchers highlight gaps in data security considerations for brainwave tech

Thomas Hartwell writes:

Kennesaw State University researchers are urging a greater focus on cybersecurity in emerging brainwave technologies, which they say are vulnerable to hacking and breaches of personal data.

Brainwave technologies can be used with a wired cap that feeds and decodes information straight into a computer, or wirelessly by wearing sensors on the scalp and broadcasting waves that are picked up by Bluetooth and decoded. The technology is often used to assist people whose ability to communicate is limited by disability.

But Randolph and Tufon said neurophysiological tools could be vulnerable to more manipulation and sharing of private information than currently considered.
