Media Panel – Finding & Reporting News While Avoiding FUD

Main Stage

How often have you been called by the COO or Board to explain an ICS hacking story in the media … and asked “will it affect us”? The media has an impact on ICS security, potentially positive and negative, and S4x18 has two of the most respected and experienced reporters in this area on stage to discuss a variety of issues including:

– How do they determine if a story is worth covering?

– How do they balance the need to attract attention and the easy slide into FUD?

– What is their desired ratio of news (hack or vuln of the day) to analysis stories?

– What is the best way for a researcher or vendor to pitch a story to a reporter … and what to avoid?

The audience will have a chance to ask questions as well.
