Irdeto Speaker - Mark Hearn

Additive manufacturing is having an extraordinary impact on the way many products are manufactured. Realizing the full potential of AM requires re-thinking traditional approaches to design and automation - which enables new business models - but is also disrupting supply chain players. This exciting potential for industry is also accompanied by potential for hackers who are actively looking to exploit these advancements. Effectively securing the integrity of AM processes is now absolutely crucial, and data protection for 3D printed files is becoming extremely important.

This session will discuss specific use cases in Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing (Distributed Digital Manufacturing, Integrity/Traceability of the Digital Thread) from the perspective of an experienced hacker, and provide pragmatic strategies to mitigate cyber threats by thwarting the hacker 'business model'. The session will also discuss real-world exploits and mitigated as examples of how a 'common sense' approach to cybersecurity can be used to open new manufacturing business models.

Learning Objectives

Understand a cybersecurity methodology for Additive / Subtractive Manufacturing based upon thwarting the hacker 'business model'

Understand a pragmatic approach of applying cybersecurity to address relevant quality control issues and repeatability in Distributed Digital Manufacturing models

Understand how specific cybersecurity strategies can be used practically to open new business models and provide tangible competitive advantages

How defending against me can open up new manufacturing business models for you

To Protect your IP, you Must think like a hacker

Wednesday, October 23rd  2019 

1.30 pm - 2.15 pm 

Intercontinental Buckhead Atlanta 

As the ICS industry moves to more standardized platforms, making use of connectivity and the use of off-the-shelf software, critical software has never been more vulnerable to access by hackers or reverse engineers. 

Wanting to monetize their high-tech innovations, many industrial companies are productizing digital twins, predictive maintenance, digital diodes, behavioral analytics, AI/ML, Additive Manufacturing, and so much more. However, at the core of these product innovations is the patentable Intellectual Property developed in software, for which the attack surface has exponentially increased by IIoT connectivity.

 If compromised, this software is as readable as a book to any hacker able to run commonly available reverse engineering tools.

In this session, Mark Hearn, Sr. Director of Strategic Business Development at Irdeto, will take you through a discussion of how hackers think about their targets, what they look for, and how your product security requirements can combat them. 

Starting with the maturing of the Secure Software Development Lifecycle, delving deeper on software protection, and highlighting where advances in software protection are headed, Mark will demonstrate how your software businesses would significantly benefit from the protection of the key algorithms and critical data advancing your IIoT ecosystems.
