Today’s world is more interconnected than ever before. Yet, for all its advantages, increased connectivity brings increased risk. Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure are vulnerable to those seeking to disrupt or destroy everything from medical records and robots, to industrial machinery and automobiles. More pressure will be placed on designers of these products to ensure that all available technologies are implemented to protect against attacks.
An audience Q&A follows the speaker presentations.
