Inside the Mind of a Hacker: How to Properly Secure Digital Twins
Organization’s today know they need to have a cybersecurity strategy in place to protect its intellectual property (IP) and sensitive data from getting into the hands of cybercriminals. However, while most know they need security, many are failing to properly implement the best cybersecurity approach. So, why is this the case?
Many organizations are failing to learn about what they’re up against. Without knowing what you’re up against, an organization’s approach to cybersecurity is destined to fail. Mark Hearn, Head of IoT Security at Irdeto, will explore how hackers operate, what they are after and how they gain access despite security measures that are already in place. Digital Twins will then be explored as a specific use case that are a ripe target for these hackers’ techniques, painting an end-to-end picture of a hacker’s motivations and methods. The presentation will also discuss the wider potential for digital twins in the future security of the IoT and connected environments.
