If You Like Sci-Fi, Get Ready for Cy-Phy
Whether you’ve been flabbergasted or captivated by the stunning technologies taking over our homes, cars, and businesses, it’s clear we’re entering a new technology era. This convergence of Cyber things with our Physical spaces is something I call ‘Cy-Phy.’
Cy-Phy is being driven by the implementation, and convergence, of technologies—including OT, IoT, 5G, Edge computing, and artificial intelligence. These, combined with new technologies just over the horizon, are fundamentally changing how we interact with our surroundings. But for these changes to achieve their transformational potential, their security implications need to be understood and planned for long before their impact is felt.
Security professionals will inevitably be drawn into the Cy-Phy revolution—whether or not we are prepared. We need to recognize the moment: this revolution can either become the next wave that overwhelms our already at-the-limit security teams, or it can become an enabler of business because we have already implemented the foundational elements of security strategy that will allow us to thrive in the emerging Cy-Phy environment, including speed, integration, collaboration, and automation.
Join Phil Quade, Fortinet’s CISO, and a panel of experts and visionaries as they discuss the implications of the Cy-Phy revolution, its impact on both IT and OT systems, and how we can begin to prepare now for a future that seems to exceed our imaginations by ensuring our approach to security is sound and our foundational solutions are strongly in place.
