How are the threats and threat actors evolving post Snowden and Bradley Manning? What needs do critical infrastructure have that can be supplied by innovative cybersecurity products and services providers? In this enlightening panel, senior executives at four critical CI sectors will describe the threat landscape in their sectors: telecom, defense, oil and gas and finance.
