In this podcast, Dan Scali, senior manager for Mandiant consulting and Grady Summers, FireEye Chief Technology Officer, discuss key issues in critical infrastructure and industrial control systems. Bank data centers, nuclear power plants, and water plants make up this niche area of information security that’s quickly gained increased importance with recent high profile breaches.
