8,300 Cybersecurity Professionals Attend Virtual ICS Conference
Last week, 8,300 ICS cybersecurity professionals attended a virtual conference and NetWars competition hosted by SANS and Dragos. The NetWars CTF was limited to the first 1,000 and every virtual seat filled up. The program, designed to provide timely, actionable information in support the ICS community along with a fun simulated ICS environment where they can practice and hone their skills, included the most dangerous current threats and hands-on demonstrations, as well as helping operators understand the thinking behind the new White House Executive Order (see the next story). Most remarkable was the demonstration of a "controller-in-the-middle" attack that had not previously been seen. All SANS alumni will have complete access to presentation recordings as well as a downloadable CTF solution package.
