The Critical Infrastructure Threat Landscape and How to Prepare for 2023

Presented by

Daniel dos Santos, Head of Security Research, Vedere Labs

About this talk

Several events in 2022 shaped the current threat landscape for critical infrastructure, such as the OT:ICEFALL vulnerabilities highlighting how insecurity by design affects critical devices, new OT/ICS-specific malware showing state-sponsored actors' inclination to cause cyber-physical damage via this insecurity, ransomware groups attacking critical infrastructure for financial gain, and several hacktivists attacking unmanaged devices for their own political agenda. We expect this threat landscape to continue expanding in 2023, with even more attacks on critical infrastructure, state-sponsored actors expanding their arsenal with new sophisticated malware, ransomware groups diversifying their extortion campaigns, and more hacktivists adopting OT as a target to spread their message. How is this all relevant for asset owners? Tune in to understand: • What does the current threat landscape for critical infrastructure look like and what could change in 2023 • Strategies and actions that asset owners should take to prepare for this evolving threat landscape
