Hardly a month goes by when hacking of some computer network or system makes the headline news.  Sometimes it is the e-mails, sometimes it is a business system and sometimes a personal security system.  Even automobile’s computers have been hacked.  As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes more and more a part of our life, we constantly face the risk of someone taking advantage of a weakness in the system’s security and doing us harm.

The focus of this presentation is on the industrial Cyber Security. 

Business computer systems have been a target of industrial espionage for quite some time.  When successful, hackers have caused significant financial and social damage to the businesses.  And there are documented instances when the hackers have attempted to gain access to industrial control system (ICS).  Needless to say, the consequences of such a breach can be significant.

So, this presentation will focus on

a.     What is Industrial Cyber Security

b.     What are different types of threats

c.      What are the challenges

d.     What are potential consequences

What are different solutions?
