Senior Technology Editor Neil Roiter interviews Brian Ahern, president and CEO of Industrial Defender, which specializes in the security of critical infrastructure systems.

The nation’s critical infrastructure providers have been called onto the carpet. Recently, a house subcommittee delivered a blistering appraisal of the deficiencies in power companies security posture. Coming on the heels of a GAO report that Tennessee Valley Authority power plants are vulnerable to cyber attack, the congressional tongue-lashing raised questions about what power, oil and gas, chemical, water and transportation companies are doing to secure their systems. In this podcast, we ask Brian Ahern, president and CEO of Industrial Defender, which specializes in the security of critical infrastructure systems, about the state of security in these vital sectors and the special challenges these companies face.
