Abstract
The landscape of cyber is constantly changing and those changes are coming faster than ever before. The new Internet of Things area is one of these areas that are adding billions of devices that all create a true cyber-impact in our lives. Business Insider forecasts that by 2020, 75 percent of new cars will come with built-in IoT connectivity. This is only one of the 9 environments of IoT that we will see unprecedented growth. So, what do we do to prepare our cyber policies and forensic response for this emerging technology. Learn what areas are growing and how to watch for the associated risks. Learn what is required for a digital forensics response plan when it comes to IoT devices.

The Battle for Cyberspace
by Samuel S. Visner

 

Abstract
Samuel S. Visner, Director of the National Cybersecurity Federally Funded Research and Development Center and Professor of cybersecurity policy, operations, and technology at Georgetown University, will speak on changes in the way in cyberspace is regarded by different countries, and the consequences of these changes for information security professionals. The talk will discuss the following topics:
• The forces shaping the future of cybersecurity
• Cybersecurity as an instrument of statecraft; the “sovereignty” of cyberspace
• Efforts by other countries to control and govern the cyberspace on which we depend.

The talk will include a high-level history of cyberspace, the rise of integrated computer networks, and the role cybersecurity plays in the international system, with particular attention given to the “new normal” in which hostile computer network exploitation and attack, coupled to “computer network influence,” have emerged as daily phenomena with which information security professionals and the C-Suite must deal.
