Critical infrastructure, including electricity grids and telecommunications networks, is under attack. Optiv's Brian Wrozek discusses the challenges CISOs face in dealing with increasingly connected industrial devices.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Dallas Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Wrozek discusses:

  • The fusion of the business environment and the industrial controls environment;
  • Industrial IoT devices and the challenge of holistic monitoring;
  • The likely rise of "nuisance" and ransomware attacks on critical infrastructure.

Wrozek is the managing executive director, office of the CISO, at Optiv.
