CyberX cordially invites you to a half-day educational seminar about

New Threat Vectors
for ICS/SCADA Networks

Thursday, September 7 at 13:30

The Home House, 20 Portman Square, London, W1H 6LW

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


Seminar: New Threat Vectors for ICS/SCADA Networks

Modernisation initiatives such as Industrie 4.0 and Smart Grids, involve implementing new Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices, converging IT and OT networks and supporting Big Data analytics and real-time intelligence.

All these lead to a larger ICS/SCADA attack surface, presenting new cyber-risks, as cyber-attackers seek to disrupt production operations, deploy ransomware, and steal corporate IP using industrial malware and targeted threats.

Designed for both executives and hands-on professionals, this workshop provides a unique opportunity to network with your peers, discuss best practices for protecting OT networks and learn from industry experts about:

  • How to continuously monitor your OT network for new threats and evaluate the relative risk to your organization from diverse ICS threat actors
  • Conducting risk and vulnerability assessments with no impact on operations and effectively convey the new threat to your business leaders
  • Implementing new risk-based controls that move beyond simple patching to include asset discovery, continuous monitoring, and behavioral-based anomaly detection

Seminar Abstract

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

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

In addition, a new emerging class of targeted automated ICS malware such as Industroyer / CrashOverride, hijacks industrial devices without requiring human intervention, communicating directly with them using native industrial protocols. It’s easy to imagine the same advanced hacking tools being used to lock down production facilities and hold companies up for ransomware.

This workshop will allow participants to network with their peers and share best practices for protecting their ICS/SCADA networks from new, emerging threats.
