Restart, Rethink, Rebuild - Cyber Security Threats to Critical Infrastructure and Industrial Operations

October 21, 2021
10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. CT

When a cyberattack shut down a cross-country gas pipeline last spring, the interdependence and risks between public infrastructure and technology were laid bare. Cyberattacks are no longer limited to just certain industries—they impact infrastructure project management and delivery service, creating a risk in need of strategic defense. Ransomware attacks, credential harvesting, wire fraud, phishing schemes and network infiltration are ubiquitous. Implementing an effective cybersecurity program requires a multifaceted approach involving both technical and legal expertise.
