SAN FRANCISCO -- Is the state of smart grid security worse than we think? According to Robert Hinden of Check Point Software Technologies, it is.
With almost half of the attacks that occurred last year being energy-related, the security issues surrounding smart grids have proven to be a very real, very current problem that needs addressing now.
In this video, recorded at the 2013 RSA Conference in San Francisco, SearchSecurity.com Senior Site Editor Eric B. Parizo and Robert Hinden discuss the critical state of smart grid security, including how the consequences of energy-related incidents could have a potentially deadly outcome, such as when hospitals shut down or lose power, and how enterprises can begin to be proactive about preventing critical infrastructure security issues.
