Cyber security is a popular topic these days especially in the enterprise spaces. Despite being potentially overshadowed by other more traditional concerns, engineering projects are equally as exposed. From autonomous cars, critical infrastructure, operations technology, embedded devices and the internet of things, there are plenty of opportunities for exploitation and some of those exploitations can have significant consequences.

During this presentation KPMG will discuss the technical aspects of a hacking methodology, and some of those unintended consequences. Please read below for further details.
