NetWars: ICS

ICS NetWars Tournament participants receive 3 CPEs

ICS NetWars is a suite of hands-on, interactive learning scenarios that enable Operational Technology (OT) security professionals to develop and master the real-world, in-depth skills they need to defend real-time systems. It is accessible to a broad level of player skill ranges and is split into separate levels so that advanced players may quickly move through earlier levels to the level of their expertise.

Level 1

ICS NetWars provides participants with a challenging scenario facing an operational process control environment. Players will be challenged to develop a full understanding of the environment, equipment, infrastructure, and vulnerabilities throughout Level 1 play.

Level 2

As players enter into Level 2, they will access 100's of data artifacts from within the simulated process environment and will need to perform analysis, forensics, and incident response activities in order to complete Level 2. Additional levels are in development at this time.

Level 3

Players are provided a series of host and network data sets as well as virtual machines to use as they perform direct analysis of ICS specific adversary activity within a process environment.

Level 4

Players will directly interact with a live process environment within the DEF cookie factory, as they work to validate and verify the integrity of the control system environment.
