Security Breach: 'How Can I Make Stuff Worse'

Insights from a resident hacker on the evolution of industrial cyberattacks.

The potential of smarter factories driven by advanced technologies and greater connectivity is exciting … but equally daunting.

That’s because in our enthusiasm to embrace all the time and cost savings associated with the machines, automation and data associated with these advancements, the industrial sector often pushes one of the most important aspects of all this connectivity into the realm of tomorrow’s problems.

Well, tomorrow is here. There are over 20 billion connected devices in the industrial sector – and that’s a number projected to nearly double in the next five years.

Joining us to discuss what all these connected devices will mean to cybersecurity planning is Jason Kent, Hacker in Residence at Cequence Security, a leader in API protection solutions.
