Our regular open call will take place tonight, Monday 8/08, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety. If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tonight we will be discussing various questions in the areas of cybersecurity and electric infrastructure. How is it possible for a seemingly minor power outage to ground all Delta flights across the nation? Is it possible to have a fully secure electronic system? What kinds of infrastructure vulnerabilities currently exist? What would the consequences of coordinated breaches or failures be? How can we make ourselves more secure?
We welcome your participation in an open, honest conversation where everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts and ask questions we don’t typically investigate. Thanks for your time and we look forward to speaking with you!
