The 2009 European Community SCADA and Process Control Summit
Venue: Hilton Stockholm Slussen
|Event Date/Time: Oct 27, 2009||End Date/Time: Oct 28, 2009|
Who Should Attend & What Will You Learn?
Learn the most critical security challenges in implementing smart meters and smart grid. Learn what the US is doing with its $4.8 billion in Smart Grid funding to ensure these systems do not create new risks.
Plant Managers, Engineering and Operations Management, Project Managers, Automation and Control Managers, Process Control and SCADA Engineers, Plant Engineers
Learn the lessons discovered by leading process control user organizations throughout the world, and what your process control vendor may be doing to boost the defenses on systems already deployed, and on new systems.
Information Security and IT Professionals in Organizations That Deploy Industrial Control Systems
Learn why control systems are so difficult to protect and arm yourself with clear case studies showing what has been done and what can be done to protect SCADA and other control systems. Learn the language of control systems so you can be of more help to the engineers who plan and deploy such systems.
Control System Vendor Developers and Integrators
Understand the requirements and constraints faced by owners and operators of automation systems. Determine the state of the art in control system security as a benchmark for your own future planning.
Government Leaders Responsible for Policy and Regulation of Utilities and Other Process Control Users
Better understand what government can and cannot do by learning the requirements, constraints, and current capabilities available to secure critical control systems.
Academic and Research Laboratory Leaders
Determine the most challenging and important questions that will shape your process control security research agendas.
Questions for the Summit
1.How has the threat to control systems changed during the last year? Who are the new attackers? What kind of damage have they already done? What can they do?
2.What are the security challenges in smart meters and what can be done to mitigate them?
3.Exactly how do attackers penetrate the defenses that have been established by most control system users? What are the principal vulnerabilities in control systems and how should they be prioritized for mitigation?
4.What are some of the most valuable lessons learned by leading asset owners to improve security of control systems?
5.Learn what governments are doing to both assist and regulate security in control systems.
6.What techniques are the most advanced control systems users implementing to mitigate the threat? How are they training their people? How are they balancing information technology and control systems needs?
7.How can utilities gain top management support for major security initiatives?
8.Which SCADA security research projects have shown useful results? How can asset owners put those findings to work?
9.Which control system vendors have made the most progress on implementing the new standards for secure configuration of their products?
10.What tools have governments developed that make security of control systems more effective and efficient?
