ICS/SCADA Cyber Attacks - Fact vs. Fiction

  • Robert M. Lee
  • Tuesday, October 13th, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Industrial Control Systems (ICS) play a huge role in almost every aspect of modern day life. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) as an example play a large role in monitoring and controlling the power grid, oil pipelines, and more. It's understandable then that they gain attention in national headlines when they come under attack.

Due to this ability to grab attention and the complexity behind getting the technical details right though there have been cases where the stories have just been down right wrong. These inaccurate case-studies push hype and confusion which drives the investment of resources into trying to solve the wrong problem. The threat is real, but plenty of the stories are not. In this presentation, Robert M. Lee, the ICS515 author and FOR578 co-author will break down a number of high profile stories that are fiction and then deconstruct real threats to show the actual issues in the community and what can be learned towards defense.
