Hack NYC 2018
May 8 - May 10$50
Join us for Hack NYC 2018 in New York City in 2018 across the street from Port Authority a national landmark of transportation and in the heart of New York City, Time Square. This event will have attendees and speakers from around the WORLD.
Cyber attacks are often called non-violent or non-kinetic attacks, but the simple truth is that there is a credible capability to use cyber attacks to achieve kinetic effects. Kinetic Cyber refers to a class of cyber attacks that can cause direct or indirect physical damage, injury or death solely through the exploitation of vulnerable information systems and processes.
Kinetic cyber attacks are a real and growing threat that is generally being ignored as unrealistic or alarmist. These types of attacks have been validated experimentally in the laboratory environment, they have been used operationally in the context of espionage and sabotage, and they have been used criminally in a number of attacks throughout the world. While these types of attacks have thus far been statistically insignificant, the rapid growth and integration of cyber-physical systems into everything from automobiles to SCADA systems implies a significant kinetic cyber threat in the near future. It is imperative that the security community begin to take these types of threats seriously and address vulnerabilities associated with cyber-physical systems and other devices that could be utilized to cause kinetic effects through cyber attacks.
Be part of defining solutions and illuminate risks aimed at Critical National Infrastructure
- financial services (banking, clearing);
- security services (police, military)
- electricity generation transmission and distribution;
- gas production, transport and distribution;
- oil and oil products production, transport and distribution;
- water supply (drinking water, waste water/sewage, stemming of surface water (e.g. dikes and sluices));
- agriculture, food production and distribution;
- heating (e.g. natural gas, fuel oil, district heating);
- public health (hospitals, ambulances);
- transportation systems (fuel supply, railway network, airports, harbors, inland shipping);
This event is about sharing big ideas on how we will fortify our daily life and economic vitality. The threat of attack aimed at Critical National Infrastructure is real as services supporting our communities and businesses face common vulnerabilities and an unspoken kinetic threat.
Content in support of The NIST Cyber Security Framework is aligned to five functional areas;
- Identify – “Develop the organizational understanding to manage cybersecurity risk to systems, assets, data, and capabilities.”
- Protect – “Develop and implement the appropriate safeguards to ensure delivery of critical infrastructure services.”
- Detect – “Develop and implement the appropriate activities to identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event.”
- Respond –“Develop and implement the appropriate activities to take action regarding a detected cybersecurity event.”
- Recover – “Develop and implement the appropriate activities to maintain plans for resilience and to restore any capabilities or services that were impaired due to a cybersecurity event.”
