The Convergence of Physical and Cyber Security: attacks, threat vectors and responses 

Survone-Block-Logo_SmallWith the hottest thing being the “Internet of things”, and cyber control of physical devices escalating, a new era of vulnerability is being created where a cyber attack will be more than an attack on computers. It will increasingly consist of taking over devices. No one is more vulnerable to that than your security implementation: access control, cameras, alarms, bio metric identification and other security hardware. David Wallace of Surveillance One, in conjunction with physical security specialist Security Solutions International SSItm will deliver an overview of the full two-day program.Topics include how hard security devices at critical infrastructure and other sites can be compromised through Cyber-Attack and revealing the vulnerability of IT Networks via an attack through the physical security hardware. 
Current examples include breaches of airport access controls, pipeline disruptions, power outages, and critical infrastructure SCADA control devices seized by foreign nation states and criminal actors in the cyber space. We will discuss the following appropriate responses: 
  • Techno to reduce liability and exposure to aggressive attacks.
  • Implementing security policies and procedures at the site level.
  • Local law enforcement involvement, critical response options and protocols.
