Session #5: Tales from the Field: Practical Measures to Better Secure Your Control System
Description: Mandiant assesses many types of industrial control systems each year, especially those supporting critical infrastructure, and have found several repeating themes. Although advanced products and security controls specific to control systems are coming to market, we continual find a gap in basic fundamentals for control system security. This talk will examine some of those themes, show how they can be used to protect systems, and give examples where these would have helped to alert defenders during cyber attacks.
Expected Outcome: Attendees will leave this session with a better understanding of the ways by which threat actors attack control systems.
Intended Audience: Control system engineers, control system security engineers, IT security engineers, control system managers
