CyberX cordially invites you to a seminar about

Emerging ICS/SCADA Threats and How to Maximize Operational Resilience

Thursday, May 3 at 13:00

Churchill War Rooms, Clive Steps, King Charles Street, London, SW1A 2AQ

Register now, seating is limited and all attendees must be pre-approved


A new class of targeted ICS malware such as TRITON and Industroyer/CrashOverride, as well as WannaCry and NotPetya, have shown that the cyber risk to production uptime is real.

Boards of directors now understand that sophisticated malware can indeed be used to hijack industrial devices, lock down production facilities, and impact -financial results. Other potential impacts of a successful ICS cyberattack include catastrophic safety failures, environmental release of hazardous materials, and theft of corporate trade secrets.

But what can be done to mitigate ICS risks? OT environments are quite different than IT environments, with longer patch cycles, legacy devices, weak authentication, undocumented network topologies, and specialized non-IT protocols.

During the seminar, we will hear case studies, discuss the new ICS/SCADA threat landscape, understand why perimeter security tools are not sufficient and talk about why and how to fuse OT security into the corporate SOC.

This event is an opportunity to network with your peers and share best practices for protecting ICS/SCADA networks from new and emerging ICS threats.

Seminar Abstract

According to the Ponemon Institute survey, nearly 70% of organizations sampled suffered a security compromise resulting in the loss of confidential information or operational disruption in their Operational Technology (OT) environments, in the past 12 months. In addition, 59% of cybersecurity managers believe there is greater risk in OT than IT environments.

A range of diverse cyber-adversaries, including nation-states, cybercriminals, hacktivists, and malicious insiders, pose financial, reputational and regulatory risk to global industries.

The challenge is compounded as organizations adopt digitization initiatives such as Industry 4.0 and Smart Grid, further increasing risk by creating a larger attack surface from new IIoT devices and the convergence of IT and OT networks to support real-time intelligence.

The business impact can include costly production outages, safety failures, and environmental release of hazardous materials, as well as theft of corporate IP such as sensitive information about proprietary manufacturing processes and product designs.

This workshop will allow participants to network with their peers and share best practices for protecting their industrial networks from these types of risks.
