    Rob Shein is a Senior Manager at PwC Japan with nearly 25 years of experience in cybersecurity, ranging from industrial control systems, military applications of both offensive and defensive cyber measures, and Internet of Things (IoT) security. Most recently, his focus has been almost entirely upon IoT in general and automotive security in particular, having managed and participated in projects in both North America and Japan.
    Mr. Shein got his start in cybersecurity with penetration testing back in the 1990s. From there he continued with network security and red team engagements, before shifting his focus from finding problems to solving and eventually preventing them. For nearly a decade his career remained split between improving security of the US power grid and supporting elements of the US cyber warfare community. After that, his focus changed to automotive security and IoT in general.
