Why Industrial IoT Security Is Really about Saving Lives

Posted on in Presentations

Industrial control systems simply cannot tolerate any downtime, or risk human safety in any way. A compromise can result in millions of dollars lost — but even more devastatingly—the loss of life. This talk will offer new approaches to protecting industrial control systems and critical infrastructure and focus on the importance of human safety that’s at risk when these devices are compromised.

Learning Objectives:
1: Understand why traditional IT security solutions don’t work for securing industrial IoT.
2: Learn how existing IoT security standards need to be overhauled to be more impactful.
3: Realize that securing critical infrastructure is really about saving lives.

Basic understanding of IoT and IIoT security.
