One of the outcomes of our increasingly interconnected operating environment is the rise in hybrid cyber-physical attacks. These hybrid attacks target both cyber and physical assets, blurring operational and cyber security strategies. Successful cyber-physical attacks may disrupt or deny critical infrastructure operations, making mitigation a top priority for public and private sector leaders.
The 2021 ICIT Fall Briefing Series will be hosted on-line as a series of three weekly virtual events focused on cyber convergence or integrating physical and cyber security strategies. CISA suggests that business leaders develop a “…holistic security strategy that aligns cybersecurity and physical security functions…”. By bringing together top public and private sector leaders, ICIT is advancing the conversation about the importance of protecting our Nation’s critical infrastructures by hosting thought-provoking dialogue about the impact of cyber-physical attacks.
Each week will feature presentations and sessions on a different theme.
