Parent Track


The number of IoT devices is growing rapidly and so is the challenge of keeping them secure on both open and industrial networks. Millions of devices without adequate security are sold to consumers each year. These devices can be used for unwanted disclosure of personal data, spying, and for use in DDoS attacks. Furthermore, the adoption of more entangled Industrial IoT devices will result in increased attacks on factories, medical facilities and manufacturing centers. These cyberattacks can slow down the industry growth and be potentially damaging to economy of a country.

Additionally, more and more cyberattacks are aimed at the critical infrastructure, disrupting air traffic, electricity or water supply, medical facilities, and transportation systems. Keeping these facilities guarded from cyber intrusion must be a top priority of governments around the world.   

In this session we will learn how to incorporate IoT devices in existing security infrastructures and the new available measures of defending against the cyber-adversaries.

The Sorry State of Consumer IoT Security and How Can We Possibly Fix it
Alexei Balaganski, KuppingerCole

The Internet of Things has already become an integral part of our daily lives, whether we like it or not. In the office, at home, and even in the street, we are surrounded by a multitude of smart devices ranging from smart TVs and fridges to network routers, voice assistants and parking meters. No matter how different their functionality is, however, all these “things” share two major common traits: they are all connected to the public Internet and they lack the most basic...

Effective Countermeasures For Securing Critical Infrastructure – A View On The Human Aspect
Tom Hofmann, Eniwa AG

When we think of security in the OT / IoT space, we are very focused on technological measures and controls. However, the recent incidents in this field showed that security events are not only based on a failure of technical controls. The 2017 Triton malware attack on SaudiAramco is a good example of what can happen based on human behaviour. While the attacked Triconex SIS controller is protected by a physical switch, it seems that this switch has been left in program mode. The ongoing...

Panel - Future of Critical Infrastructure Security
Marko Vogel, KPMG • Dr. Danny Hughes, VersaSense • Richard Bell, MicroFocus • Tom Hofmann, Eniwa AG

More often we hear about the devastating effects the attack on critical infrastructure can have on the citizens of an affected city or a country. Yet we don't see large scale attacks yet being conducted. Panellist will discuss possible threats in todays world as well as the ways private sector and governments can collaborate to prevent such assaults on critical infrastructure.
