Tenable’s Space Rogue Presenting at SXSW: Ukranian Power Grid Hack, Could the US Be Next?
WHAT: Just how vulnerable is the American electrical grid to hackers?

As a founding member of L0pht Heavy Industries, a hacker collective in the ‘90s and the first security research think tank, and a strategist at Tenable Network Security, Space Rogue brings decades of experience as a security researcher to Austin for SXSW 2016.
Space Rogue will speak at the Passcode Digital Security and Privacy Hub (booth 509).
