BOSTON, Sept. 26, 2018 – CyberX, the IIoT and industrial control system (ICS) cybersecurity company, is sponsoring an educational SANS Webcast featuring Andy Bochman, senior grid strategist for National & Homeland Security at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), and Phil Neray, VP of Industrial Cybersecurity at CyberX.

Titled “CCE — INL’s New Approach to Securing Critical Industrial Infrastructure,” the webinar will describe a new approach to securing critical industrial infrastructure called consequence-driven cyber-informed engineering (CCE).

In this webinar, Bochman, a nationally recognized cybersecurity expert with extensive experience in securing our national infrastructure, will outline the four major steps to the CCE method — identifying your crown jewel processes, mapping the digital terrain, illuminating the likely attack paths, and generating options for mitigation and protection.

Neray will touch on how a modern OT cybersecurity platform can provide new visibility into your digital terrain, prediction of the most likely attack vectors, and a spectrum of mitigation and protection options for reducing key risks to your company’s most critical functions.

Among its many duties, the INL is responsible for conducting vital research that allows us to sustain and develop nuclear energy technologies, scale other clean energy technologies, protect critical infrastructure, support national defense and Homeland Security, bolster cybersecurity and make sure nuclear materials do not fall into the wrong hands.

The webcast will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 3:30 p.m. EDT. Those interested in attending can register here.
