Presentation: Current Threats and Protection Strategies for Industrial Systems

Today’s Industrial Systems are threatened by increasingly sophisticated attacks from an expanding breadth of internal and external vectors. There are, however, technological solutions that can identify and limit the propagation and effects of know IT or ICS-specific threats, as well as less malicious (but no less crippling), common issues such as device misconfiguration, human error, etc.

This presentation will describe and demonstrate new technologies capable of filtering traffic with a deep level of observation and contextual understanding. The audience will gain knowledge through specific use-cases, and learn tactics and methods for protecting against attacks on the cybersecurity infrastructure.

Presenter: Vincent Turmel, Ph.D., CISSP
