Convergence of Physical and Cyber Security in Drones or Autonomous Vehicles [ASIS Webinar]

When:  Oct 22, 2020 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM (ET)

The addition of new drones or ground-based vehicles in surveillance and traffic control is rapidly becoming a new standard. As with any new technology, any serious vulnerability assessment must ask, “Can my own autonomous vehicles be used against me?”  While securing networks with National Institute of Standards and Testing (NIST), International Organization for Standardization and the Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) cyber risk framework are well known to IT professionals, securing drones is much more difficult; particularly if the drone is used for critical infrastructure and a concern to the government.  This presentation will discuss the various tools and standards to secure new drone and autonomous technology.

This webinar is sponsored by the ASIS Information Technology Security Community.  Registration is free for ITSC Members.
