On the last day of the Conference, we have US-CERT Trainers from the Department of Homeland Security coming to do the the following 4 hour Course:
Introduction to Control Systems Cybersecurity (101)
The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the basics of industrial control systems security. This includes a comparative analysis of IT and control system architecture, security vulnerabilities, and mitigation strategies unique to the control system domain. This course is split into four sessions: (1) Cybersecurity Landscape: Understanding the Risks, (2) Industrial Control Systems Applications, (3) Current State of Cyber-security in Industrial Control Systems, and (4) Practical Applications of Cybersecurity.
With the nature of attacks becoming more targeted and focused, this should be of great interest to all of us.
