Take this opportunity to have a virtual coffee with Rik Ferguson, Vice President of Security Research at Trend Micro and Special Advisor to Europol's European Cybercrime Centre. He'll speak with Andreas Berger, CEO Corporate Solutions, and Fred Kleiterp, CEO Corporate Solutions EMEA, about the importance of understanding the risk of cybersecurity in building more resilient companies and economies.
With edge computing or the Internet of Things, cyber threats continue to be on the rise. Today, most industrial plants and critical infrastructure facilities, such as power generation or oil and gas distribution, are increasingly controlled by webs of computers that are increasingly connected to global data and communications networks. Insufficient cybersecurity training sessions for employees or poor implementation of cybersecurity measures can expose the vulnerabilities of these systems, which hackers could target using the latest innovations in artificial intelligence to search through codes for entry points and deploy intelligent malware.
While all of these vulnerabilities are difficult to forecast and complex, the objective must be to translate these threats into manageable risks.
