A new threat landscape has emerged in Industrial Control Systems that is becoming more complex and sophisticated, to include game-changing attacks, like Stuxnet. Aside from the threat of a \Son of Stuxnet" attack, asset owners now need to be concerned about field-originated attacks that "swim upstream", a growing base of ICS-specific exploits, and malicious use of industrial protocol functions. Given the ability of any of these threats to impact availability and safety, it is imperative that operators take them into consideration when developing their ICS cybersecurity strategy.

In this webinar we look at the nature of both existing and emerging cyberthreats to ICS and why asset owners need to pay attention to them. Next, we present strategies and frameworks for defending your critical infrastructure against these threats. Finally, we will discuss next-generation technologies that enable the requisite capabilities for granular network segmentation, least privilege access control based on users and applications (including ICS protocols/applications) and threat prevention for both known and zero-day attacks.
