2014 was a memorable year in Industrial Controls cybersecurity with reports of several ICS-specific advanced persistent threats (APTs) such as Energetic Bear, Black Energy and the attack on the German Steel Factory. These successful campaigns are concerning in how they utilize a plethora of new attack vectors and techniques from social engineering, exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities, to stealthy use of industrial control protocols. The trajectory of the capabilities of these attacks suggest that cyber attacks to ICS will only continue to grow in sophistication. During this webinar we take a look at several aspects of APTs in ICS to help asset owners better understand the threat and prepare themselves to secure their critical infrastructure from this growing concern:

  • A review of the key APTs in ICS to characterize the attack life cycle and extract key lessons learned - Mike Assante
  • A discussion on where the trends are heading and identify potential areas of exposure for asset owners - Mike Assante
  • Present ideas on how existing and emerging network and endpoint technologies could be deployed to detect and prevent zero-day attacks - Del Rodillas
