Securing the World Around Us: Cyber Security for the Physical Economy

On-Demand Webinar

Summary

Cybersecurity is one of the most urgent, potentially kinetic challenges facing critical infrastructure companies and associated organizations that together comprise the “physical” or “real” economy. These include, for example, major power utilities, water utilities, operators of major bridges or tunnels, municipalities, mass transit systems, and large cloud computing providers. For these companies, cyber-attacks continue to double every few years, while the identification, prevention, and recovery efforts to prevent these losses also double in synchrony. These trends are closely tied to the rapidly evolving global cyber risk environment including expanding use of IIoT, cloud, and OT systems that both improve and, at the same time, open up compromises in organizational resiliency. Additionally, remote work responses to the current COVID-19 pandemic have exposed this new environment to threat actors now increasingly capitalizing on the chaos.

In this free webinar, Professors Michael Lepech and Mike Lyons, along with industry experts, will present a framework and some basic tools to help secure the world around us. Specifically, they will draw on lessons learned from previous cyber attacks on power utilities in the United States to help attendees foresee the risk and impact of an attack, manage the real-time response, and effectively recover to normal operations.

You Will Learn:
  • The basic elements of a pre-attack mitigation strategy

  • The structure of a coherent and effective response plan
  • The steps toward rapid and seamless recovery to normal operations
  • How to foresee the risk and impact of an attack
  • Item 4
