4th Annual Industrial Control Cyber Security USA


We are already renewing sponsors, discussing content with our Senate Members and aligning partnerships. If your interested in getting involved contact Marketing@cybersenate.com


 

Against a backdrop of continued cyber attacks against energy firms such as the Ukraine Power Industry, the massive attacks against the Norway oil and gas industry, Saudi Aramco and the continued threats such as Stuxnet, Dragonfly and Black Energy, the Cyber Senate return for the 3rd Annual Industrial Control Cybersecurity USA meeting to bring key stakeholders together to address our responsibility in ensuring the safety, reliability and stability of our Critical National Infrastructure.

Public and Private partnerships are paramount and information sharing on an international level a priority. We will be addressing key areas of vulnerability, threat detection, mitigation, and planning for the Water, Utilities, Oil and Gas, Nuclear, Power and Smart Grid Energy sector.

Key topics of discussion will pivot on convergence of operational and information technology transformation, design, implementation, integration and risks associated with enterprise facing architecture.

2016 will provide insight into how industry can further develop organisational priorities, effective methodologies, educate procurement, ensure supply chain security and how to incorporate security throughout the ICS lifecycle through the engineering process by developing appropriate security measures in specification, operation and design.

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.

2nd annual Industrial Control Cybersecurity Nuclear Summit to take place in Birchwood

PRESS RELEASE

Warrington chosen to host international nuclear conference
2nd annual Industrial Control Cybersecurity Nuclear Summit to take place in Birchwood

Warrington is set to host the second annual Industrial Control Cybersecurity Nuclear Summit on 22nd – 24th May 2017.

Taking place at The Centre, Birchwood Park, the two-day conference will cover pressing cyber security challenges in the nuclear industry, including managing supply chains, preparing for the Internet of Things (IoT) and what public/private partnerships could mean for the sector.

The event, which is aimed at an international audience, will be structured around presentations and debate from some of the world’s leading cyber security experts and authorities in nuclear security.

Past presenters have included the IAEA, ONR, NDA, BEIS, Engie, Lockheed Martin, Airbus, Horizon Nuclear, EDF and Honeywell.

Discussing the conference, event organiser James Nesbitt, Founder of the Cyber Senate said: “The security landscape is changing and the way we protect the safety, reliability and stability of our critical nuclear infrastructure must change with it.

“This event will address several key areas such as how to reduce vulnerability, detect threats and how IT and operational technology can work in synergy to defend nuclear assets. It will also cover wider issues in the industry, such as the growing skills gap. We’ve brought together an impressive range of world experts on these topics who will be sharing best practice and providing insight as to what the future may hold for this sector.”

“Warrington is home to a number of organisations in the nuclear industry, including Sellafield Ltd, AMEC Nuclear, NNL and Rolls Royce Nuclear, so holding the conference here felt like a natural step. These are big issues that affect not just the security of businesses, but of whole nations and events like these are an important way to share best practice and plan for the future.”
