From Exposure to Closure - ACT III
One Night Only: Monday, February 11, 2013
The Atlantic Dance Hall
Cast: Tim Roxey, North American Electric Reliability Corporation & The Exposure Closure Players
This event is the third installment in the highly popular four-part "Exposure to Closure" series, back by popular demand. This interactive "whodunit" begins with a germ of suspicion discovered by vulnerability researchers or intelligence analysts, and follows through forensic deconstruction, vulnerability mitigation, and on to the enumerators, who will determine if the mitigation path taken was effective.
Tim Roxey and a cast of actual researchers, intelligence analysts, law enforcement officers, private-sector asset owners, and others who work either in the murky worlds of Act, or those who work in the crisp bright light more often found in the Acts -II, III and IV. Participation will be from National Laboratories, the ICS-CERT, NERC CIP Staff, Vulnerability Researchers and members of the intelligence community.
Be warned: you may find yourself right in the center of this dramatic whodunit.
This session is a fun and interactive way to illustrate how a global community works together in partnership to evaluate emergent threats to, and vulnerabilities, in SCADA networks. This event will depict the evolution of phases to develop mitigation schemas and notify industry of successes and challenges. Specific examples from NERC and DHS will be proffered.
The audience will:
- Be exposed to the entire spectrum of the cyber security realm; this includes the identification of vulnerabilities and threats to the risk assessment, mitigation as well as response and recovery of a cyber event
- Observe a Master Sequence of Events List (MSEL) scenario-based exercise
- Gain familiarity with tools, tactics, & procedures of an adversary & apply concepts to better understand real world threats & vulnerabilities
- Gain an appreciation of Security Maturity Models and how to apply them
