Speaker: Cheryl Santor 
Topic: Disruptive Technologies in Critical Infrastructure with iOT

speaker santor cheryl 2

Our world is full of information and all businesses need it faster to make decisions and take advantage of opportunities. The use of iOT devices to provide information faster is a benefit, but in the future could it be a detriment? Industries want to know what is occurring in real time, is that something that is needed in all areas of our lives?

We will explore a project in critical infrastructure and its lifespan of a few years and discuss the benefits and realities of putting iOT in place in critical infrastructure. Then we can discuss what we see and have experienced in our daily lives with iOT devices.

She participated in the DHS NIST Cyber Security Framework workshops to create the framework in use today. She assisted ISACA International in developing the CSX program to provide cybersecurity education for those new to the industry.
