About this talk

Water and wastewater treatment plants are some of the most vulnerable critical infrastructure targets in the United States. Many of these facilities are underfunded, under-resourced and are not monitored 24/7. Throw into the mix vulnerable legacy applications and operating systems, and you might as well send out engraved invitations for hackers to come on in! Residents of Oldsmar, Florida were lucky that a plant manager happened to notice the hack in real-time and was able to stop the attempted poisoning of the entire city’s population. But water utilities shouldn’t have to rely on luck to prevent such dangerous attacks. Experts from Virsec and MR Systems discuss what's known about the recent attack on the Florida Water Utility that compromised security and exposed direct access to a critical SCADA system. Get action items you can implement right now to harden your system's defenses immediately. Distinguished guests include Robert Touchton, Chief Technology Officer, MS Systems Satya Gupta, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder, Virsec Saurabh Sharma, VP Sales ICS & Strategic Partnerships, Virsec
