The Internet of Things is raising fresh security concerns for America's critical infrastructure sectors.
While connected devices inside power plants or water treatment facilities may boost productivity and help spur innovation, they're also giving malicious hackers vulnerable targets to attack.
The Security of Things Forum, DC will bring together policymakers, experts, and executives to explore the myriad risks associated with the Industrial IoT – as well the best and most-promising solutions for securing these new technologies.
Cohosted by The Security Ledger and Passcode, The Christian Science Monitor's cybersecurity publication, this daylong event is an rare opportunity to meet and hear from the world's foremost specialists in critical infrastructure security, IoT innovators, and cybersecurity researchers.
