What Time Is It? How Manipulating “Now” Can Crash Our World

Posted on in Presentations

Timing and synchronization technologies are an important component of next generation infrastructure such as 5G and connected vehicle deployments. Stricter sync requirements put these technologies at risk of becoming dependent on GPS for their timing. This talk will explore how protection and integrity of synchronization mechanisms will become a cost of doing business across any connected industry.

Learning Objectives:
1: Understand the difference between naive GPS spoofing and advanced, targeted, spoofing.
2: Learn about the real threats of GPS spoofing across industries.
3: Understand the need to secure time and synchronization technologies.
