Scene Setting by Tim Phipps, Solarflare
Three approaches for resolution by Paul Tindall, Sepura
What could possibly go wrong?; Adrian Winkles, ARU
We hear of hacking scandals in the news all the time, but what are the implications and what should we be looking out for? Let’s explore some potential scenarios.
The business case for security; Laurence Kalman, Olswang
Legal liability and insurance costs will provide a business case for the right amount of security to be added to IoT data. There are some specific questions that we’d like to explore. Who owns "information"? What right is there to IoT privacy? Is consent really freely given when a big corporate offers the user a "yes/no" decision on 62 pages of T&Cs? Can a small, sacrificial company carry such large liabilities?
New technology will solve all of our problems; Max Heinemeyer, Darktrace
Signature and rule based security controls are inherently reactive and do not keep up with today’s threat landscape. Neither does this traditional approach work nor is it very resource-efficient because of true-positives often getting drowned in false-positives resulting in alert fatigue for analysts. The advent of the IoT adds challenges and complexity on top of this by introducing an unpreceded amount of connected devices and new technologies resulting in an even bigger attack surface. Machine learning and anomaly detection identify attacks and threats by detecting deviations from learned patterns of life for a network rather than relying on known indicators of compromise. Darktrace is used as an example to illustrate how ‘smart’ solutions protect enterprises against modern threat actors regardless of if the tools, techniques & procedures used by the attackers are known or unknown.
The role of government and regulation;Derek McAuley, University of Nottingham
What is the role of the regulator? For a start which regulator has control? (ofcom, information commissioner, health service commissioners). What level of regulation will benefit the whole industry in protecting us from both hackers and poor corporate behaviour?
Insight from Government - Professor Anthony Finkelstein, Chief Scientific Adviser for National Security
Various scenarios and questions will be posed to the audience and speakers. Questions and interaction from the audience is encouraged!
