In our latest podcast I talk to Joe Weiss about the state of security awareness in the control system community. We talk a little bit about the past and how we got there, but most of the focus is on where we are today. Do asset owners and vendors understand the problem? Are some industry sectors doing better than others and why? What standards and guidelines have been effective (and what have been ineffective)? Where are the biggest security awareness problems today?
I like talking to Joe because he has strong opinions and a passion for the subject. We don’t always see eye to eye, but who wants to talk to someone they agree with all the time?
We also talk a bit about Joe Weiss’s upcoming Control System Cyber Security Conference in Knoxville, TN from August 13 – 16, specifically about the day on wireless security and security awareness issues with wireless deployments. This is the seventh such conference Joe has put on and his first under his new company Applied Control Solutions.
