We are pleased to announce that Felix ‘FX’ Lindner will be speaking on Friday morning at S4xEurope, June 9-10 in Vienna.

FX has been a keynote and headline speaker at just about every major cyber security event around the world. I believe his work and views on trust are particularly applicable to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) or whatever you choose to call it.

Many traditional ICS have a very simple trust model with one end user and a small number of vendor/suppliers. When we get into IIOT and pushing out to the commercial and consumer users the trust relationships become much more complex and can vary over time a great deal. These may not work well with a hierarchical trust, and FX and his team’s idea of web of trust are very intriguing.

I hope you will be able to join us at the first S4xEurope in Vienna. We have three more great speakers we will be announcing over the next two weeks to join what is already some first class and original content.
