Hacker's Impression of ICS Security

Until recently, ICS remained beyond hackers' vision, but public authorities and the owners of large companies have started expressing concern about the problems they might face because manufacturing facilities are vulnerable to hacker attacks. As a result, industrial enterprises and equipment manufacturers show more interest in SCADA and ICS security assessment.

Dmitry Kuznetsov will focus on the penetration testing of industrial control systems and security analysis of SCADA performed by Positive Technologies for a variety of vendors. During this talk, he will cover the main threats to manufacturing enterprises, attack types and vulnerabilities typical of such systems.

Reactions and learnings from the Sony Hack

First we thought North Korea was behind the Sony cyberattacks. Then we thought it was a couple of hacker guys with an axe to grind. Now we think North Korea is behind it again, but the connection is still tenuous.

In a world where everything happens online, including what we think of as ephemeral conversation, everything is potentially subject to public scrutiny. Companies need to make sure their computer and network security is up to snuff, and their incident response and crisis management plans can handle this sort of thing. In this session Bruce will highlight how to secure your company against this sort of attack.
