What Every IT Leader Needs to Know About Cyber Security
SIM St. Louis proudly presents Sujeet Shenoi, F.P. Walter Professor of Computer Science and Professor of Chemical Engineering University of Tulsa delivering a program on cyber security.
- Why Are Critical Infrastructure Assets So Easy To Attack?
- How Do We Protect Them?
Ask yourself the question can a criminal entity or terrorist group from the other side of the world take out down the Internet and telecommunications systems? Or launch a worm that disrupts oil and gas pipelines, water and electric power distribution? How will we cope if the outages last for days?
The critical infrastructure, which comprises computers, embedded devices, networks and software systems, is vital to day-to-day operations in every sector -- agriculture, food, water, public health, emergency services, government, defense, information and telecommunications, energy, transportation, banking and finance, chemicals and hazardous materials, and postal and shipping. Global business and industry, government -- indeed society itself -- cannot function if major components of the critical infrastructure are degraded, disabled or destroyed.
This program will highlight the challenges involved in securing interconnected critical infrastructure assets, in particular, the Internet and IP networks, telecommunications networks, banking networks, and process control (SCADA) networks used for oil and gas, water and electric power distribution and will discuss the importance of designing security solutions that weave together science, technology and policy.
An evening spent discussing one of the most critical business challenges facing every organization today. One not to miss!!
