Mission Critical: Securing Critical Infrastructure, Connected Devices, and Crypto & Payments
Our summit will bring top industry thought leaders together to discuss the best strategies for keeping your organization secure. Our expert group of speakers will take this one step further by providing true, tangible takeaways for optimal cyber resiliency for you and your organization.
For this summit we will focus on 3 critical and complex areas of concern. While each area has it on set of unique challenges, each was chosen for their interconnections with almost every other area of concern within cybersecurity.
Critical Infrastructure is where security hits home- we are dependent on our infrastructure for so many facets of our daily lives. Critical functions of our societal dependencies such as water, power, transportation and financial services are a part of Critical Infrastructure, and last year we saw first-hand through the Colonial Pipeline incident the strength of this dependency.
Payments today can move in a permissionless, decentralized world, across borders, peer-to-peer and can be innovated upon at the speed of the internet and software to suit a specific need. The explosion of digital assets moved from a bitcoin-only world to a multiverse of alt-coins, stablecoins, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and decentralized finance (DeFi). Rapid expansion of the cryptoverse and its mainstream adoption by traditional financial institutions, investors, and payments companies is causing a material shift in how we think about the future of finance.
Connected Devices are transforming how we do every aspect of business. Experts expect the number of connected devices to reach 75.44 billion by 2025, indicating a fivefold increase in only a decade. These sessions will cover medical device security, growing cybersecurity issues associated with enterprise IoT, growing attack surface, modernizing IT and OT and more.
