Session #9: Weakness at the Boundaries, Fixing Constraints for Industrial Security
Presented by ConvergeOne & Cisco
2:30 PM - 3:15 PMTue
Description: Specialized systems require specialized handling yet the expertise and authority to properly secure these critical infrastructure elements may not be present. Operational engineers have great knowledge of their process and equipment. Security specialists know their trade. But we know that critical infrastructure was built without security in mind and there is a history of standard security practices actually breaking critical infrastructure.
This discussion will give examples of how these boundary weaknesses have resulted in mishaps and exposure. In turn specific actionable guidance will be provided to increase security in the future.
Expected Outcome: Attendees will find similarities between the operating states of impacted systems and their own environments. The presentation will present explicit steps to improve critical infrastructure security that can be acted on immediately.
Intended Audience: All Conference attendees.
