Industrial Control Systems operate tirelessly - safely and efficiently creating and delivering power, clean water, moving people and producing most all of the varied products and services on which the world depends. When working properly, control system networks seamlessly move data between devices, other control systems and to and from business enterprise systems, yet they are known to be fragile. The challenge of protecting control systems, and finding and correcting networking problems can be overwhelming; yet, the cause of problems can often be traced to unintended changes, misconfigurations, new devices and connections and even malicious threat actors. In this session, learn why it's critical to identify, monitor and benchmark everything connected to control system, how data moves and why even the faintest noise in the industrial control communication process matters.
