4 Assume breach Preventive controls not good enough Detective controls more imperative as device population grows Security Philosophy Focus on key assets and event detection Mobile security should be carefully evaluated Prevention on the "network of things" will not scale

5 Emergency response driven by IT disruption What it would look like What we normally do How response is different What we know now How we are addressing the problem Cyber Meets Emergency Services

8 Critical Infrastructure Now the target of most attacks Overall cyber attacks are up, but most dramatically in the last year, the type of attack has shifted away from hacking and financially motivated crime toward cyber espionage focused on critical infrastructure, such as utilities, according to research from communications provider Verizon. These arent about stealing data and fraud, theyre about deny, disrupt and destroy, said Bryan Sartin, director of investigative response for Verizon. In its upcoming Data Breach Investigation Report, a yearly document that is one of the more noteworthy surveys of attacks released to the public, the company found that cyber espionage, once a far lesser component of the attack volume, is now dominating networks /Critical-infrastructure-now-target-most-attacks
