An Opportunity to Change the World If You Like Sci-Fi, Get Ready for Cy-Phy
Whether you’ve been flabbergasted or captivated by the stunning technologies entering our homes, cars, and businesses, it’s clear we’re on the precipice of a new technology era, where data about nearly about all the Physical things around us converges with more 'traditional' Cyber things. I call it ‘Cy-Phy.’
Cy-Phy is being driven by the implementation, and convergence, of technologies—including OT, IoT, 5G, Edge computing, and machine learning. These, combined with new technologies & trends just over the horizon, will fundamentally change how we'll interact with our surroundings. But for these changes to achieve their transformational potential, their security implications need to be understood and planned for to be fully realized.
Security professionals need to recognize the moment: this is a revolution that can change the world. If we recognize the moment -and such moments are fleeting- we can serve the world in nearly unprecedented ways.
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.
