The threat environment has changed rapidly, and what we once thought of as theoretical is now a reality. Things we thought couldn’t be secured, or didn’t need to be secured, are now essential to a secure environment. We’ve seen a rise in advanced persistent threats, which have been effective in targeting organizations worldwide. Critical infrastructures were not a major concern for most — until Stuxnet hit and left organizations scrambling. Now, with the explosion of embedded devices, we’re seeing an explosion of threat vectors. We must secure all of these, while the bad guys only need to find one way in.
Simon Hunt breaks the myth that certain things don’t need to be secured, and that certain things aren’t securable. He will discuss a new approach, which encompasses going into the hardware, ensuring real-time updates and strong, clear metrics for success.
