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? Space Rogue (aka Tenable’s Cris Thomas) takes a look at the recent Ukrainian power grid hack and previous confirmed and unconfirmed incidents of cyber attacks that caused physical damage in the real world, providing a voice of reason in the debate over cybersecurity for US critical infrastructure. 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.
