FBI, Cyber Vet Don Codling: ICT Systems Vulnerable to Attack

Don CodlingCybersecurity veteran Don Codling is set to chair a regional summit on the changing cyber threat landscape and its impact on the energy and utilities market, Trade Arabia reported Wednesday.

Codling, who worked for the FBI for more than two decades, said being updated is especially important for managers of critical infrastructure and environments with finite resources.

“ICT systems can work wonders in streamlining large-scale infrastructure but as they become better-connected to global networks, they become more susceptible to attack,” Codling said.

“That’s why it’s important to have an accurate and constantly evolving picture of the cyber threat landscape,” he said.

Codling also linked automation to elevated risk profiles for connected systems and noted that having the latest cyber threat insights provide tech leaders with tools to use time, manpower and resources more efficiently.

“Accurate, timely and focused cyber intelligence is essential if we’re to have any hope of adapting internal and external defenses rapidly enough to reduce and mitigate cyber and physical threats to ICS,” he said.

Codling will be joined by other cybersecurity experts from government and industry at the March 23-26 conference and workshop in Abu Dhabi.
