CIO security lessons: Dark thinking on IoT & exploding enterprise networks
“How many of you or your staff had trouble getting on the internet Friday?”
That was how cybersecurity consultant Bryce Austin kicked off his talk Tuesday at SIMposium 2016, a big gathering of CIOs and IT execs at the Mohegan Sun resort in Connecticut, on the “Unintended Consequences of the Internet of Things.”
Uncomfortable laughter ensued.
Austin, who then went on to make attendees even more uncomfortable, swears that even though his session didn’t make the original program, it wasn’t added to the agenda as a result of the now notorious IoT-exploiting Dyn DDoS attack that unfolded Friday.
