Few outside information security circles realize just how critical cyber security is to systems used to monitor, manage, and maintain chemical plants, natural gas pipelines, dams, railroad switches, nuclear power facilities, and water treatment plants
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
The Hacker Halted cyber-security conference is coming to Atlanta, GA and will host the private screening of Dragon Day on the evening of September 19 before the largest gathering of ethical hackers and IT Security professionals who work to protect individuals, companies, and governments from cyber attacks. The movie explores themes of the NSA, privacy, China, the exploding national debt, and America’s vulnerabilities to Cyber War– all topics of which the cyber security industry is keenly aware.
“We are excited to bring this current, relevant movie premier to our exclusive audience of IT Security professionals” says Eric Lopez, Director of EC-Council’s Conference and Events.
Mr. Lopez went on to say, “Few outside information security circles realize just how critical cyber security is to SCADA systems, [Specialized control devices used to monitor, manage, and maintain chemical plants, natural gas pipelines, dams, railroad switches, nuclear power facilities, and water treatment plants] and Dragon Day explores this danger and follows the potential, fatal outcome to a malicious attack of this type, in its plot.”
In a further example of the movie’s relevance, this year’s Hacker Halted has dedicated an entire speaking track to SCADA/Critical Infrastructure, which will feature eight industry professionals deliver briefs on a wide variety of Critical Infrastructure topics.
