As emerging technologies continue to transform the world, cybersecurity is becoming more and more central to the engineering profession. Cyberattacks pose an ever-present threat to governments, businesses, and individuals, and it is incumbent on engineers to design and maintain secure digital infrastructure.
At OSPE’s 2022 Engineering Conference, Changiz Sadr (P.Eng., FEC, CISSP) will lead a presentation on engineering and cybersecurity, using real-world case studies of cyberattacks on smart grids, transportation systems, and other critical infrastructure. He will share statistical data about these attacks and their impacts, identify the shortcomings that made them possible, and present engineering solutions to these incidents. Sadr’s presentation (Engineering and Cybersecurity) offers compelling real-world examples of cybercrime and identifies how engineers can build a safer digital world.
