What keeps us up at night?

Cybersecurity in the Developing Nation

Brian Nesgoda – Chief Information Security Officer Sikorsky Financial Credit Union

Cyber threats and cybercrimes impact all of us. It is a global issue growing at an accelerating rate. How are developing nations affected? The increased threat of cyber-attacks puts the critical infrastructures and industrial control systems (ICS) of hospitals, utilities, transportation, communications and government agencies of developing nations at risk.


Building resiliency into these systems is crucial for their availability. The emerging digital economies of developing nations are also at systemic risk from cyber-criminals. Rampant fraud or hacking attacks, for example, could crash a developing nation’s emerging digital economy. Widespread fraud could deter participants from using e-commerce which would negatively impact a growing economy.


Simply, computer crime and hacking are a growing world problem which threaten the critical national infrastructure and emerging digital economies.

Where does a person, a company, or a government begin to combat these challenges? “I don’t know what I don’t know.”


Knowing the vendors of my vendor and the potential threats that may results from those relationships is one of the most difficult risks to identify. Add it to your risk assessment. The risk assessment is the fundamental pillar in the development of a cyber security program. Resources are often limited so focus more on the controls and less on the threats.


After completing this session, you will be able to:
  • Learn how they are affected by cyber-attacks
  • Learn how to develop a Cybersecurity Program
  • Know resources are available to address the threats
  • Learn about the emerging technologies that are changing how we implement security
