My article “Our smart future and the threat of cyber-kinetic attacks” is published on HelpNetSecurity. Like most of my writing, the article focuses on cyber-kinetic threats of industrial control systems and how the rapid adoption of IoT keeps exponentially increasing the threat.

From the article: “The continued growth of CPSes as an integral part of our physical well-being forces not only security professionals, but all stakeholders in our journey into a highly connected world to rethink traditional security concepts and solutions. Security must not take a back seat to rushing new technologies to market as quickly as possible. Hoping that past security approaches or – worse yet – blind, wishful thinking will prevent the disasters that inadequate security can bring is not an option.
