Warfare is no longer about dumping thousands of men in a field and shooting at each other. Today, non-governmental forces are packing explosives onto commercially available drones and flying them over crowded areas.

While this attempt was unsuccessful, it marked the first time — but almost certainly not the last — that a paramilitary organization tried to assassinate a sitting head of state with a drone.
Flying taxis are soon to become reality. Dubai started testing taxi drones last year. The Volocopter is supposed to provide transportation for two passengers for up to 30-minute trips. The Volocopter and other flying taxis are supposed to publicly launch within five years. What are the cybersecurity risks associated with autonomous flying vehicles?
