I specialize in preventing and defeating the unthinkable – threats through which computers could turn people’s physical lives upside-down. From my start in law enforcement more than 25 years ago, I came to focus on emerging threats of cyber-kinetic attacks – cyberattacks on Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) that threaten people’s physical well-being, lives or the environment. Now, as a Partner in PwC, I bring this expertise to businesses to help them defeat these often-overlooked – but potentially deadly – hazards.
