Getting Real With IoT/IIoT Security: What Cyber Protection Strategies Actually Work For An Ever-Connecting World?

Paul Brager (Technical Product Security Leader, Digital Technology, Baker Hughes, a GE Company)

Date: Wednesday, October 24

Time: 4:30pm - 5:30pm

Session Type: Hot Topic

Vault Recording: TBD

Audience Level: All

Without question, one of the most pervasive change agents impacting connectedness is the rapid expansion of IoT (Internet of Things) and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) ecosystems - altering both consumerization strategies and the sheer way in which we leverage near real time data from instruments, “smart” machines, “smart” factories, etc. As the industry continues to expand and become more robust, the security capabilities have lagged (much as is in the case in traditional IT) – the difference, however, is that adoption of IoT and IIoT has been expanding at a much more aggressive clip than traditional IT emerging technologies.

Learn more about the unique risks of IoT/IIoT ecosystems and how to secure them, in this Hot Topics guided discussion with your peers and industrial control systems security industry veteran Paul Brager. What types of assets really comprise IoT/IIoT? What types of data could flow through these devices? What strategies can you use to secure the hardware, the software, and the data? Do you need entirely new policies and practices for IoT, or can you adapt other mobile and endpoint policies? Can the secure development lifecycle be integrated into the IoT supply chain? Will “security-as-a-feature” be a powerful IoT market driver? What IoT security standards have been introduced, and have they got any chance of being implemented, when all the investment money goes to developing new functions and features? Do IIoT security concerns disrupt smart city initiatives or industrial control system upgrades? Discuss your concerns, share ideas, and devise a plan for the factory floor or the office smart fridge.
