Critical infrastructure is on the front line of cybersecurity.
An attack on power, sanitation, healthcare, or even the banking system, could be catastrophic. But it could happen.

Then, it was the Y2K bug that worried the experts.
Today it is state sponsored actors.
As chief security scientist and advisory CISO at Thycotic, Carson has pitted himself against CNI’s defences, and found them wanting.
But can, and should, we do more to create practices and norms to protect these vital services?
