“The security threats to U.S. critical infrastructure span the digital divide” Presented by Idaho National Labs, October 3/4 Sacramento

The security threats to U.S. critical infrastructure span the digital divide. Resent attacks, like those in the Ukraine, blend the cyber and physical environment to cause confusion within and damage to the production environment. Modern cyber defense requires sophisticated operational tactics and strategies. Although, cyber hygiene is essential for fending off the daily barrage of lower level threats that can impair an organization’s performance, few companies are prepared for a targeted attack on their core operational processes from an advanced adversary.

 

If it can be programmed, it can be hacked. This daunting reality facing our interconnected and digital environments has been described as a battle to be won every day by cybersecurity professionals.

Control systems present unprecedented challenges as they are transitioned to a modern architecture based on digital control systems and increasingly wireless communications systems.  This transition creates a paradox – more efficient, effective operation, but dramatically increased vulnerabilities and attack surfaces.

 

INL’s unparalleled capabilities in nuclear nonproliferation and cybersecurity are fundamentally changing how the nation and world approach complex threats to nuclear assets, energy systems and cyber-physical systems.

 

•       Internationally recognized nonproliferation experts with real-world experience in nuclear facility inspection, physical protection, modeling and simulation, material science, physics and engineering.

 

•       Comprehensive instrumentation and control, cyber and nuclear nonproliferation capabilities with similar nuclear infrastructure and examination equipment found worldwide.

 

•       INL’s full-scale infrastructure includes; isolated, industry scale power grid, water and telecommunication distribution systems to provide an expansive and unique test site that can replicate critical services across a region or municipality.

 

•       Inclusive nuclear security approach that allows for field and laboratory technology evaluation.

 

•       Replication of typical control system network for architecture reviews and system hygiene to support asset owners in securing their systems.

 

•       Protocol analysis, reverse engineering and cybersecurity forensics to advance persistent threat mitigations for the nuclear industry.

 

•       Cyber-informed risk methods and unique engineering methodologies and tools designed to anticipate cyber and physical security risk, and inform investment strategies.

 

•       Frameworks for prioritization of investments and threat indicators to inform and advanced security profile for high-consequence operations.

 

Safeguarding critical infrastructure including the power grid, nuclear materials and facilities is inextricably linked to the cybersecurity of the command and control environment.

 

These environments are complicated by instrumentation and controls that are continuously connected with information technology and wireless communications.

 

An integrated cyber physical security approach is essential to address the resiliency of the power and nuclear installations and continuity of operations.

 

INL’s world-leading cyber and industrial control systems security experts are changing the way the nation and the world meet the unique security demands of operational environments.

 

Understandings the BASICS – Optimising your ICS Security Posture

As Operational Technology (OT) environments become increasingly interconnected and smarter, organizations face significant digital transformation challenges. The business demand for the raw data and information produced by OT systems is growing exponentially both from an internal and external perspective. As the demand for data increases, so has the volume of cyber-attacks specifically aimed at OT system. Cyber-attacks are becoming more advanced and have the potential to impact a number of aspects of a company’s business including safety, health and environment, production operations, information integrity, financial performance and reputation.

For a company looking to harden their OT environment, identifying where to begin can often be a confusing and difficult process. Before embarking on an OT hardening project, for example by either implementing costly technical solutions or introducing new OT specific policies and procedures, leaders need take a step back and ask themselves if they understand, or have thought about, the “BASICs” of OT.

In this session, Leidos Cyber Expert, Scott Keenan, will explain Leidos’ view of OT “BASICS” which provides organizations with the foundation necessary to build a OT hardening project.

Why USB devices are still the #1 source of malware in Industrial Control Systems, presented by Honeywell

This September in London and October in Sacramento, we learn from Honeywell why USB devices are still the #1 source of malware in ICS. This discussion will help you understand how USB devices can pose a threat even without malware, including:
o Surprisingly effective HID attacks
o More advanced threats posed by rogue network devices, serial adapters and more
Participants in London and Sacramento will see real examples of the impact these attacks can pose to ICS, plus Eric Knapp, Global Director of Cyber Security Solutions and Chief Cyber Security Engineer for Honeywell Process Solutions asks “Are these really advanced? Do you even have to worry about this?”

This year all critical national infrastructure are invited to join both shows free as an initiative to further cyber resilience in both public and private domains!

Discussing the event, organiser James Nesbitt of Cyber Senate commented: “The aviation industry is evolving rapidly and the integration of numerous smart technologies in areas such as airports, aircrafts and control towers will undoubtedly help drive the sector forward.

 

“This tech brings with it many benefits, in everything from enhancing the customer experience to enabling asset owners to be more easily able to troubleshoot problems before they arise. However, it also makes aviation assets vulnerable to cyber threat and, perhaps in aviationmore so than in any other industry, security breaches have the potential to be truly catastrophic.

 

“Cyber threats to the aviation industry are constantly evolving and asset owners must ensure that they have the most up-to-date strategies to ensure that they can manage them. This event will help them do that.”
