Lessons Learned from the Jeep Hack: How to Reduce Software Vulnerabilities in Cyber-Physical Systems
April 11, 2016 @ 13:00 - 16:15 EDT
About the Virtual Event
Last summer’s Wired article describing vulnerabilities in the Jeep shows that software is being created and deployed with exploitable, yet avoidable, security flaws. So far, the automotive attacks have been largely demonstrations. However, successful cyber-attacks have been carried out on steel furnaces in Germany and the electrical grid in Ukraine. Insecurely written software in cyber-physical systems places people and property in jeopardy. Fortunately, there are many techniques available to those building software for cyber physical systems that can greatly reduce their vulnerability. This 3-hour virtual event starts with an in-depth review of the Jeep scenario. It then examines how security can be introduced throughout the software development lifecycle to blunt such vulnerabilities. At the end of this event, the participant will understand how to add security into the process for specifying, building, testing and deploying software in cyber-physical systems.
