Today, the Silicon Valley ISSA Chapter held their January Monthly meeting. The topic was security trends of 2010. It was advertised as a discussion on what's in store for information security professionals for year 2010. In this panel discussion, the CISO/CSO panel members presented their viewpoint on how the security function must evolve and mature to keep pace with new business trends, threats, compliance demands and shifting strategies. The speaker panel included:
David Hahn - Senior Vice President and Group Information Security Officer, Wells Fargo
Leslie Lambert - VP & CISO, Sun Microsystems, Inc.,
Patrick Heim - CISO, Kaiser Permanante
Nils Pulhman - CSO, Zynga

The title of the slides stated “Meeting security challenges in changing times”. Neither Smart Grid, SCADA, or control systems were identified. None of these subjects were discussed in the prepared or question/answer sessions. Shouldn’t information security professionals be concerned about these systems?  When I asked why they weren’t discussed, I was told they didn’t make their list. We still have a long way to go.
