The U.S. transportation industry is in the cross-hairs of global cyber-crime attackers. The trucking industry is particularly exposed, as many carriers continue to rely on an outdated patchwork of information technology systems to conduct business electronically. In this session, “Who is Driving this Rig? Cyber Security Concerns in the Transportation Industry”, Mark Fidel will discuss the biggest security challenges facing companies and outline best practices they can use to pro-actively address cyber risks through threat prevention, detection, and response.
