Join the editors of Dark Reading on Wednesday, August 20, at 1:00 p.m. EDT (10:00 a.m. PDT) for the Best of Black Hat, which will focus specifically on the question: Do critical systems trust too much?

Please click here to register for this week's show and for additional information about Dark Reading Radio.

In this episode of Dark Reading Radio, the editors are focusing on the strengths and weaknesses of these systems and how to begin setting up your own security protocols to deal with the reality on the ground.

This week's show will feature:

  • Ruben Santamarta, who will talk about security for satcom terminals -- those earth-bound stations that play such a critical role in television, radio, industrial, and government communications.
  • Jesus Molina, who will describe his research into hotel room access, environmental control, and entertainment systems -- and why a simple "Do Not Disturb" sign can be a hacker's best friend.
  • Charlie Miller & Chris Valasek, who will be discussing their research in the security of automobile control systems and just how easy it is for someone to gain access to and command of the electronics that power, brake, and steer modern cars.

In addition to security experts and editors, Dark Reading Radio offers a unique text chat following the radio show on the Dark Reading website. After registering here, listen to show, and then stay around to ask questions and see what your peers are thinking about when they think about security.

Please join us this Wednesday at 1:00 p.m.
