    • ISA 62443 Patch Management Overview and Methods for Zero-Day Threat Protection ISA 62443 Patch Management Overview and Methods for Zero-Day Threat Protection Joe Weiss, Managing Director for ISA99; William Cotter, Systems Engineering Specialist; Delfin Rodillas, Sr. Manager of SCADA Recorded: Apr 8 2015 4:00 pm UTC 67 mins
    • The growing presence of widely known and used Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) systems in Industrial Control Systems (ICS) provides an increased opportunity for cyber attacks against ICS equipment. Such attacks, if successful, could have severe impact to not only process availability but also safety. Patch management is one particular area of cybersecurity which requires special attention when applied to ICS. It is part of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy that increases cybersecurity through the installation of patches that resolve bugs, operability, reliability, and cyber security vulnerabilities. The ISA-TR62443‑2‑3 technical report, developed by the ISA 99 Working Group 6, addresses the patch management aspect of ICS cyber security. Also part of an effective strategy is the use of compensating cybersecurity controls to protect ICS systems from exploits and malware in between often long patching cycles. Novel network and host based technologies have recently become available to address even zero-day threats which bypass conventional signature-based approaches.

      Attendees of this webinar will leave with a better understanding of:
      -The unique aspects of ICS that entail a different and more rigorous approach to patch management than that used in business networks
      - An overview of the ISA 99 standards efforts with detail review of the main aspects of the ISA-TR62443-2-3 Technical Report on Patch Management in IACS
      - Advancements in compensating cybersecurity controls for protecting systems from zero-day threats

    • Exposing Common Myths Around Cyberthreats to SCADA and ICS Exposing Common Myths Around Cyberthreats to SCADA and ICS Joe Weiss, Applied Control Solutions and Managing Director for ISA99; Del Rodillas of Palo Alto Networks Recorded: Jan 7 2015 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • While awareness over the need for improved cybersecurity in SCADA and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) has improved in recent years, several inaccurate and dangerous assumptions about ICS cybersecurity best practices and the nature of cyber threats still persist. If held by organizations as fact, these myths could result in inadequate cyber-defensive measures and a high level of exposure to a range of attacks or even simple accidental cyber incidents both of which could have equally concerning consequences to process availability and safety.

      Join ICS cybersecurity experts, Joe Weiss and Del Rodillas, to learn about:

      - Common myths around cyberthreats to ICS and why they could be significant security gaps when held as truth
      - Select real-world examples that highlight the consequences when malicious actors successfully exploit these gaps
      - The more updated and accurate view to ICS cyberthreats as well as effective technologies which help asset owners build a stronger ICS security posture

      Presenters:
      Joe Weiss, Managing Partner of Applied Control Solutions, Managing Director for ISA99

      Del Rodillas, Sr. Manager for SCADA and Industrial Control Systems Initiative at Palo Alto Networks

    • Cyber Security of ICSs: What Is It and What Is Actually Happening Cyber Security of ICSs: What Is It and What Is Actually Happening Joe Weiss, CISM, CRISC, ISA Fellow, IEEE Senior Member, Applied Control Solutions, LLC Recorded: Oct 22 2015 4:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • ICSs (Industrial Control Systems) make up part of the “Internet of Things” and are used throughout the industrial infrastructures of electric power, water, pipelines, manufacturing, and transportation. ICSs are technically and operationally different than business IT systems. The policies, technologies, testing, and forensics used to secure IT may not be applicable to ICSs. For IT, Cyber security generally means malicious attacks using the Internet and targeting Windows systems. The same is not true for ICSs. There have already been more than 700 actual ICS cyber incidents causing impacts from trivial to significant environmental releases to equipment damage to deaths. However, very few of these incident have been identified as being cyber-related. This webinar will address what is ICS cyber security, why is ICS cyber security different than IT, what has actually been happening with ICS cyber security, and what should be done to help secure these critical systems.

    • ISAs: Helping Early Birds to the Juiciest Profits ISAs: Helping Early Birds to the Juiciest Profits Lesley Hankin, Marketing Director, Marketing-hub.co.uk Recorded: Apr 26 2010 1:00 pm UTC 18 mins
    • Early bird ISA investors could be over £7000 better off than those who leave their decision until March, according to Fidelity FundsNetwork, yet only one in ten make their move at this time of the year. Using a five step plan, Lesley will outline how you can change that by contacting your own ISA clients simply, cost effectively and with maximum impact, to help as many as possible benefit from the potential which this tax year's increased allowance could bring.

      Lesley has a wealth of financial services marketing experience, gained almost entirely in the advisory channel. In a varied career, she has worked for a range of life, pensions, offshore and investment providers - most notably AXA Equity & Law, Framlington and, most recently, M&G - and also spent time with two national IFA firms. Just over three years ago, she joined the team which launched Marketing-hub.co.uk, a business set up to provide free marketing and business development support to financial advisers. Lesley is FPC qualified and holds the Diploma in Marketing.

    • Who Turned Out the Lights? Managing Security in Key Systems Who Turned Out the Lights? Managing Security in Key Systems Eric Byres, P. Eng., ISA Fellow Chief Technology Officer, Tofino Security, a Belden Brand Recorded: Aug 15 2013 4:00 pm UTC 42 mins
    • The susceptibility of critical SCADA and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) to security issues confronts many organizations. While it may be rare for an attacker to penetrate a control system directly from the Internet, corporate intranet connections, remote support links, USB keys and laptops all create pathways for the typical worm or hacker. Once inside, impacting an industrial control system is not difficult — in some cases, even the most basic scanning can wreak havoc.

      This talk will explore the key differences in the IT and ICS worlds and how this impacts security policy and technology. We will look at the standards available for SCADA and ICS security and contrast them with the ISO27000 security standards for IT. And we’ll look at what leading companies have done to be successful in the drive to a more secure and reliable industrial environment.

    • Solutions to the Income Challenge Solutions to the Income Challenge Best Advice: Closed-end Fund Forum Recorded: Feb 17 2011 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Investors’ need for income has never been greater, given the economic backdrop of low interest rates and low bond yields, so the challenge for advisers to source this income is considerable. Recognising the available options and understanding how to meet this challenge is now crucial. Moreover, many investors do not fully understand the risks associated with generating a steady income stream to meet their needs in the current environment. Advisers need to recognise the wider range of options available and learn how best to use them for the benefit of their clients.

      The experienced members of this panel will debate the issues that surround meeting the needs of income-hungry investors, paying particular attention to the possible pitfalls of relying solely on income from the UK market and examining the growing range of opportunities that now arise overseas. They will look at the impact of the increased concentration of income from a shrinking range of companies and sectors in the UK –a development that has challenged many equity income managers - and discuss the merits and potential risks of diversifying income sources outside the UK. As the ISA season approaches, they will look at ways to maximise income, with a spotlight on closed-end funds in a tax-efficient wrapper. The panel will talk through the benefits of revenue reserves, a feature unique to CEFs, and share their thoughts on how to best serve the income-seeking clients of advisers.
