Cyber Security – The Unlikely Romance; How Hackers are Defending Control Room Networks

29 September 2021 – 11am (AEDT)

When most folks hear the word “hacker” their reaction is one of fear, but those responsible for cybersecurity are increasingly understanding the role of the “digital locksmiths” amongst us. In this talk, Casey Ellis will unpack the unlikely romance between trusted, good-faith computer hackers, and the people who build and defend software infrastructure. He’ll share insights on how this feedback loop between builders and breakers has broken out of the early-adopter technology bubble to create a more resilient Internet for more traditionally conservative industries, including those where ICS/SCADA make up the core of their business.

There will also be plenty of time for Q&A, so get your questions ready!
