TIA NOW | Interviews MSi CIO, Carlos Solari - The Internet of Things: Security By Design


Ahead of its annual TIA 2016: Network of the Future conference in Dallas, Texas, TIA NOW provides the latest ICT insights and trends through leading programs, covering the hottest issues in the technology industry.

Carlos Solari, Chief Information Officer at Mission Secure, spoke with TIA NOW about the three waves of network security concerns for critical infrastructure systems and other vertical network systems. Solari talks about historical network breaches from healthcare and industrial verticals to physical and software based systems, which have had cascading consequences and still prove to be a challenge for the IoT ecosystem.

"The third wave emerging now in terms of moving away from the theory of what can happen to understanding what can happen is what's called cyber-physical systems. Another term for it is industrial control systems where the electricity grid is of concern. We've seen something that happened in Ukraine recently that really took it out of the realm of 'this is theory.' This is what can happen there, it can happen here as well..."

 

Solari will be speaking on a cybersecurity panel titled "The Next Waves of Cyber Threats in a Connected World" at TIA's Network of the Future Conference June 6-8 in Dallas.
