Session Track: IIoT for the Factory

Tuesday, June 9 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM On Demand Library

IF1246CA - Cyber Threat Actors and Industrial IoT Systems

As with every technology connected to the Internet, Industrial IoT (IIoT) platforms are targets for malicious actors of varying stripes, ideologies, and capabilities. Due to the often safety-critical nature of IIoT platforms, evaluating potential threat actors is an especially important task. During this presentation, we plan to evaluate the spectrum of these groups, from disaffected youth through advanced nation-state military and security services. By evaluating previous incidents, geopolitical trends, and likely future developments, the presenters will seek to educate audience members on the spectrum of threats and how to most effectively protect their IIoT systems.
