ICS Asia Pacific Summit & Training 2020

Summit: November 13 | Courses: November 16-21


Join SANS for ICS Asia Pacific Summit & Training 2020 taking place in Singapore. The current cyber security landscape presents a very diverse and chaotic picture of the threats facing industrial control system owners and operators. Attacks that cause physical damage or impact physical processes are no longer limited to theory or speculation. We've now seen several high-profile cases where malicious actors have successfully intruded, caused system damage, and impacted operations. Disruptive malware delivered through increasingly creative methods have found their way to plant floors encrypting critical files or in some cases wiping those files altogether. Our industrial control systems are as critical as ever and we need to be prepared to better defend them or face a turbulent future.

Robert M. Lee

Robert M. Lee
SANS certified instructor Robert M. Lee brings to the classroom one of the most valuable and respected of credentials: real-world experience. Robert is the CEO and founder of his own company, Dragos, Inc., that provides cyber security solutions for industrial control system networks. Consider the 2015 attack on the Ukraine power grid when for the first time in history a power grid went down due to an intentional cyberattack. Robert and a few others formed a specialized team to analyze the event and passed information to the impacted parties as well as the U.S. government and private sector.

"I was the first in the industry to publicly confirm the attack and wrote the industry standard report on the attack exploring how it occurred, the lessons learned, and what must be done to protect other infrastructure sites," Robert says. He and his team also analyzed the malware from the 2016 cyber attack on Ukraine's Kiev substation and dubbed it CRASHOVERRIDE as the first ever malware tailored to specifically disrupt electric grid operations.
