IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cylance® Inc., the company that is revolutionizing cybersecurity through the use of artificial intelligence to proactively prevent advanced persistent threats and malware, announces that Zach Lanier, director of research at Cylance, will be keynoting the MANUSEC, the Cyber Security for Critical Manufacturing Summit. Lanier’s focus will be on sharing operational intelligence in the manufacturing industry by rethinking how to identify malware threats and how to protect corporate data and artifacts.
The MANUSEC conference brings together cybersecurity leaders in the critical manufacturing industry. As cyber-attacks on the American manufacturing industry have doubled within the last year, there is an increased cause for concern over the threat of intellectual property theft. The Cyber Security for Critical Manufacturing Summit has brought together its first event for senior security thought leaders, to help build productive discussions and guide the key manufacturing companies across America.
“It’s so encouraging to see the manufacturing industry start thinking proactively about security and building security into their processes,” said Jon Miller, chief research officer at Cylance. “Particularly, in the age of the internet of things, it’s becoming more and more important to think about security at the very start of implementation and product development.”
The conference will bridge the gap between the process control and corporate IT senior level professionals, allowing them to discuss challenges, share experiences and debate best practice guidelines. This will lead to the building of robust policies and standards that will shape a securer future for the manufacturing industry.
Lanier’s keynote, Putting the OPSEC in OpIntel: A Proposal for Sharing Operational Intelligence, hones in on how organizations with limited resources can protect their intellectual property against malicious attackers and targeted malware. In the keynote, he will focus on how to identify these threats and propose a system for achieving visibility and threat intelligence via a publish/subscribe model, which protects and anonymizes corporate identities and data.
“Protecting your organization can seem like an incredibly daunting task for smaller companies or even larger enterprises who are strapped for resources,” said Lanier. “The objective of my keynote is to demonstrate some new methods for knowledge-sharing, without introducing risk.”
