MISAC MuniTech Academy ICS SCADA Cybersecurity

About this talk

Many organizations struggle to protect their Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and SCADA systems. Other organizations struggle with knowing how much cyber risk their organization has. ICSs are often critical systems with low tolerance for interruption, making them very tempting targets for threat-actors especially nation-states. Thus far, incidents have been low but the emergence of proof-of-concept attack software suggests that this trend may not hold for long. Local Governments need to get ready now before they find themselves a victim. Unlike personal computers, which can be reformatted and restored from backup if required, PLCs and other components can be “bricked.” This means that malware could render them completely inoperable and requiring physical replacement. In this session we will cover some of the difficulties with cybersecurity and ICS, including Supply Chain, Vendor Management, Shared Responsibility and going beyond the standards. ICS-CERT Coverage NIST CSF, NIST SP 800-53, COBIT, ISO 27001, ISA 62443, COSO, AWWA G430-14 IT, OT, IoT, Cloud, AI
