Presentation Details:

“Securing Critical Networks: Infrastructure Exposed”

As the networks used to control critical infrastructure (utilities, manufacturing facilities and transportation systems) have increased connectivity and added more IT-based controls, the threat of such assets coming under cyber attack has leapt dramatically. Recent vulnerability research has proven that many critical infrastructure and SCADA systems are exposed to potential threats. This panel will discuss these issues.
