Building More Secure, Resilient and Safer Critical Infrastructure

This session will focus on critical elements of resilient systems and how to build them. We explore the work of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) and tie it to Google engineering practices to provide clear examples of how to build resilient systems that run the internet. We’ll discuss 4 critical pillars of cyber resilience and the role they play in fortifying systems against cyber threats in a cyber-physical environment. We’ll discuss the interconnectedness of these pillars and how they form the foundation of a robust cyber resilience strategy.
