8:10 AM Future Proofing Industrial Control Systems

Industrial control systems serve as an integral part of critical infrastructure, empowering vital sectors including electricity, oil and gas, water, transportation, manufacturing, and chemical manufacturing. Effectively addressing ICS cybersecurity necessitates a comprehensive understanding of current security challenges and available mitigation tools.  Defense-in-depth allows a flexible framework to  strengthen security posture and help to defend against cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities. Legacy systems used  protocols that were difficult to hack, but with the convergence of IT and ICS architectures, recent high profile breaches have shown the potential risk. Organization must get creative in their defense and apply layered approaches that make targets less attractive and attainable. 

•Implementing strategies for securing control system environments
•Investigating how threat actors can carry out attacks and the potential impact on industrial controls
•Evolving control systems management and security practices
