“Trends in Cybersecurity”

History tends to repeat itself, and when it comes to cybersecurity we have seen one particular pattern always hold.  Disconnected systems start to become connected together, and over time these move from proprietary little known protocols to open standards, leading to a proliferation of new applications and uses.  Some number of years after the joy of this new connectivity fades, a realization comes that these systems are not secure.  New vulnerabilities are discovered, attacks occur, and security is retrofitted back in.  This has happened in IT environments already, it is happening in industrial environments today, and it may be coming to broadcasting tomorrow.   This topic will discuss how this pattern has occurred, what is the current state of industrial cybersecurity and the problems and solutions being built in that area, and how might this apply to the next frontier of IP-connected systems.
