June, 2022 | Paul Roberts

Bryson Bort is a cybersecurity industry leader with experience in both the public and private sectors. He is the founder and CEO of Scythe.io, which performs high-level vulnerability assessments. He is also the co-founder of the ICS Village, a non-profit organization that builds critical infrastructure (CI) and presents it at various conferences. The non-profit also offers guidance and resources for IT practitioners.

Bort’s experiences made him the perfect fit to moderate a highly anticipated session at this year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco: Colonial Pipeline - What Happened, What Changed, featuring panelists from government, the media, and the fuel industry. ConversingLabs podcast host Paul Roberts checked in with Bort during this year’s conference to talk about the panel discussion, and the lessons learned from the Colonial Pipeline incident - including the need for closer scrutiny of critical infrastructure and the limits of voluntary, industry-driven standards for cybersecurity.
