“IoT Security Panel”

Medical Community CISO (Rob Ferrill, UAB Health CISO)
Technologists (Chris Poulin, BAH and Tom Graham, Sentar, Inc.)
Facilitator (Stan Lowe, BAH)

Abstract:

From connected elevators to smart cars, the Internet of Things (IoT) is all around us, even in ways we’re not aware of. The devices make our lives easier, encourage us to exercise, and save time and resources–but at what cost? With current computer and mobile technology, the main threat is to our data and our accounts, with phishing and ransomware topping the charts; however, the IoT introduces risk to our personal safety and compromises our privacy in ways we can’t even yet imagine, and will eventually blur the lines between biology and technology.

“America’s Schwerpunkt- Cyber War and IoT”

LTC Tim Bloechl
USA, Retired

Abstract:

In 2007, the little Baltic country of Estonia experienced several days of intense attacks against their cyber infrastructure responding to a seemingly minor movement of a statue in downtown Tallinn.  The next year, four days prior to their ground attack, Russia conducted a massive cyber-attack against Georgia to prepare the ground for land invasion.  Similar efforts were used by Russia in the Ukraine.  These examples, and others since then, illustrate the importance placed on the impact and operational necessity of using cyber-attack as a means to set conditions on the modern battlefield.  With the coming of age of the Internet of Things (IoT), the cyber-attack targeting and potential Cyber War impacts on society  have changed and grown significantly.  The speaker will recount the use of cyber-attack as an offensive means to disrupt government, military and other critical infrastructures, compare and contrast these capabilities in an IoT environment, and offer key lessons for U.S. national security and defensive cyber operations consideration

“The Inherent Danger Behind the Internet of Things (IoT): Exploiting IoT Big Data”

Kell Rozman
Sentar, Inc.

Abstract:

Forbes predicts AI, Big Data, and Cyber Security to be the top technology trends in 2017. When you think of artificial intelligence, do you think of WOPR, T-800 or HAL 9000? But what if you have to worry about million HAL 9000s? With the advent of the IoT and the Big Data they generate, this information can be weaponized and utilized in far more reaching areas than are comprehended today. This presentation will explore the potential exploitation and risks of IoT Big Data.

“Security Challenges Facing Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Role of 5G in Mitigating them”

Dr. Raziq Yaqub
Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Alabama A&M University

Abstract:

This talk will touch upon three important areas: (a) IIOT (Industrial Internet of Things), (b) Security Challenges of IIoT, and (c) Role of 5G communication technologies in mitigating the security challenges. More precisely the agenda of the talk would include (a) insight into Cyber Security Concepts in context with IIoT, (b), Architecture of Industrial Control Systems, including Distributed Control Systems and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, (c) Emerging Threats and Vulnerabilities in IIoT that play key role in Power Grid, Oil and Gas Refineries, Water Supply System, and other Industrial Control Systems, (d) How the future 5G communications technologies will address security concerns, and (e) Recommendations to address the challenges.
