“Worlds (Not So) Apart: Overlapping Risks Between Cybersecurity and Physical Defense"

The worlds of cybersecurity and physical security are often thought to be entirely separate. In practice, they are, but today, especially, they must coexist in a manner that compliments one another in order to be effective. In a society where nearly everyone and every organization is connected in some way, dependence upon constant interconnectivity influences our ability to wrongfully make decisions solely based on convenience. With the explosion of IoT, the stakes will only get worse. James Taliento, the Founder and CEO of cybersecurity firm Cursive Security will explore the intersection of cybersecurity and physical security. He will provide insight into the most intrusive and detrimental technologies that affect both disciplines, and will discuss ways in which we can mitigate the associated risks.
