Industrial control systems and critical infrastructure continue to become increasingly automated and digitised, yet it is an inescapable fact that we are still dependent on humans for the end-to-end security of these systems and services. In this presentation, Horizon Power’s Jeff Campbell will dive into how Horizon Power implemented business continuity planning processes that will protect their infrastructure from future threats and attacks in times of crisis.
Firewalls are easy to misconfigure. While the security consequences of such errors may be acceptable for some firewalls, the accumulated risks of misconfigured firewalls in a defense-in-depth OT network architecture are generally unacceptable. We explore eight common mistakes that firewall administrators make and describe how these mistakes can compromise ICS network security. The lesson here though is not “stop making mistakes.” The lesson is to choose appropriate technology for the need. We explore technology alternatives to OT firewalls that eliminate the potential for online attacks as a result of misconfiguration.
Between cloud, IoT, 5G, and global supply chains, the modern enterprise is increasingly complex and increasingly vulnerable.In this session, learn:
· How today’s attackers are exploiting increased connectivity between IT and OT to disrupt critical environments
· How the first AI security system ever deployed across ICS and SCADA networks understands and learns the patterns of life for unique operational environments
· Where AI shines a light on key blind spots to provide visibility across the digital infrastructure, including ICS, cloud, email, and the on premise network.
· How cyber AI has neutralized real-world threats to a medical manufacturing company’s IP, a transportation center’s IoT devices, and a major organization’s assembly line
The separation of IT and OT introduces some interesting security challenges. Due to the nature of ICS, COVID-19 forced IT at Wesfarmers WesCEF to install a number of network changes which required a fast-moving OT environment on a skeleton crew. In this presentation, Michael Dorn will present on how Wesfarmers managed to re-size VPN’s for remote working, introduce network changes through IT, and had their reduced number of staff in operating facilities combat security challenges in a slower operating environment.
No system is bullet proof. Join this group discussion with your industry peers to explore what steps are necessary to take before disaster strikes and the tools vital to ensure complete recovery. You facilitator will also dive into real life case studies and recent experiences with managing disaster recovery for control systems to help you come away with tangible steps you can take back to your own organisation.
