Autonomous systems have the potential to increase efficiency and reaction time by taking automatic actions under certain conditions. As our reliance on these systems has increased, so has the potential for exploitation of their vulnerabilities. Join Col Nate Diller of AFWERX as he defines "Secure Autonomy" and its implications for the future.

Autonomous edge systems, such as drones, face unique security challenges beyond traditional attack vectors. Extended operations with no connectivity, malicious attacks, inadequate training data, scenarios unanticipated in simulation and testing, and limited edge resources are some examples. Listen to industry experts discuss the attack vectors, vulnerabilities, and approaches to dealing with security of autonomous edge systems.
