Security Breach: Balancing the Light and Dark Forces of Technology

The unconventional sacrifices cybersecurity might demand.

As we continue to see an increase in attacks targeting the ICS, it’s about more than just the industrial sector creating cyber defense plans, cataloging connection points and shoring up vulnerabilities. The reality is that it’s going to take a communal effort to keep manufacturing – the largest single contributor to our country’s GDP – safe and secure.

As we’ve learned from a legacy of attacks spanning the last decade, the tactics used and organizations behind them continue to evolve, and we’ll need some help in order to prevent and respond to attacks that impact the livelihoods of thousands up and down stream of the initial intrusion. 

We welcome Kimberly Cornwell, an applications engineer at Siemens to discuss how the industrial community is working to meet new and evolving industrial cybersecurity challenges.

We’re also excited to announce that Security Breach is being sponsored by Rockwell Automation. For more information on their cybersecurity solutions, you can go to
