Protecting the Protectors: Cyber Hygiene for Physical Security

Tuesday, April 14, 2015
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Sands Room 304

Cyber security events are not entirely preventable, yet experts in the cyber security field suggest that a significant risk of cyber incursions could be substantially mitigated if enterprises engaged in good “cyber hygiene.” These best practices are often well-known, simple common sense approaches that should be a part of an enterprise culture. Learn how to reduce risk to your network and enterprise by identifying the most common sources of risk and exposure that can be prevented by effective cyber hygiene.

Gunshot Recognition Analytics: Delivering Actionable Information to Law Enforcement and First Responders
Wednesday, April 15, 2015
1:45 PM - 2:45 PM
Sands Room 307

The April 2013 attack on a Pacific Gas and Energy substation in San Jose, CA exposed the vulnerability of the nation’s electric power grid to vandalism and disruption. Captured on surveillance video, snipers opened fire on the substation for more than 19 minutes. By the time police arrived, the adversaries were gone. In that time, they knocked out 17 transformers that supply power to Silicon Valley. Replicated across the country, incidents such as these could take down the U.S. grid and black out much of the country bringing the economic, social and political fabric of the country to its knees.

Predicting these events is impossible and we may not be able to prevent them, but current technology exists to minimize the damage. This session explores the use of gunshot recognition technology that immediately provides actionable intelligence to first responders so they may reduce the time a shooter has to act and minimize casualties.
