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!

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

PRESS RELEASE

2/8/2017

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.”

Urban rail systems – building a modern, competitive infrastructure

The development of innovative technologies are paramount to fulfilling urban rail systems vision

Nov. 10, 2013 – Communications Based Train Control is a leading differentiator, with the ability to increase capacity, reliability and availability for regional lines, freight lines and high-density lines and for urban rail systems.
The introduction of Communications Based Train Control for traffic management and infrastructure control is a key differentiator with the capability to help operators not only reduce capital costs of new infrastructure, but increase capacity, reliability, revenue and create a safer railway.

As with any introduction of IT and communications architecture over existing infrastructure, CBTC is not without it’s challenges in interoperability, cyber security, integration and network availability and that is just the tip of the ice berg.

On March 12th and 13th 2014 global leaders will meet in London at Sagacity Media’s Communications based train control for Rail systems conference London to discuss the challenges of deployment and investment, creating a common voice for implementation and interoperability.

Who should attend?

Metro,Rail, Transit Operators, Communication and Technology leaders, Government and Academic authorities, Project consultants
