As connections between the business network and the internet increase, it is apparent that organizations using SCADA systems are encountering more security threats. Due to new potential vulnerabilities to the business network, and the evolving threat landscape, there is now a greater need to increase security around trade secrets, proprietary information and the functionality of the business itself.
To do this it is necessary to gain more understanding on the scale of the threat to avoid spending millions of dollars on projects not addressing the key vulnerabilities. It is important to have an understanding of the infrastructure of your SCADA or DCS system to be more aware of your vulnerabilities to understand what security procedures, technologies and applications should be deployed for cost-effective security.
The mission of Managing SCADA Security Risks 2011 is to dispel the myths surrounding physical and cyber security by gaining awareness of the current threat environment and evaluating the scale of the threat. This will be achieved by real world examples of how companies using industrial control systems are identifying vulnerabilities and threat professionals will discuss the reality of SCADA risks and potential implications for your business. After considering what is likely to attack in day one, the event will provide an understanding of what type of architecture and revised business process can protect against and attack. This will be achieved by evaluating cost effective technical solutions for making your SCADA networks more robust at every level.
