Industrial Control System (ICS) networks and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are the cyber backbone and brains of the nation's Critical Infrastructure. Asset owners are taking advantage of the latest IT technologies to operate more effectively, but these benefits are not without risks. New vulnerabilities that have traditionally been the problem of IT security are now relevant to these critical systems.

In this talk we will highlight the latest methods for making effective use of Threat Intelligence in the IT arena and then go on to indicate how similar approaches could and should be applied to securing Critical Infrastructure.
