As cyber-threats continue to grow increasingly sophisticated, many organizations struggle to keep up. When physical security systems are neglected, they become progressively more susceptible to attacks by malicious actors who know how to exploit their exact vulnerabilities. Will Knehr, who began his career in cryptologic warfare in 2004 and has remained a pillar of the security industry since, understands the threat presented to organizations with legacy physical security systems and how easily they can be targeted and hacked.
In this episode of SecurityDNA, join host Steve Lasky of SecurityInfoWatch and guest Will Knehr, senior manager of information assurance and data privacy at i-PRO Americas, as they discuss a wide range of topics, including the advent of Zero Trust initiatives, evolving security trends over the years, and the critical vulnerabilities present when utilizing legacy equipment.
Following a long and storied career in security, Knehr knows keenly how easily older physical security systems can be backdoored, "lived in" by hackers, and even used as conduits for data siphoning. Learn about how Knehr identifies and addresses security trends, the ways in which he believes end-users and integrators can come to better understand the vulnerabilities present in physical security systems, and why he places faith in Zero Trust initiatives to transform access control for the better.
