Public Data Source Vulnerability Identification of ICS Devices and its Shortcomings

ICS and OT devices have historically been viewed as black boxes, especially by the end users of these devices. Tools and capabilities are incredibly limited in terms of how they can provide visibility and risk identification to these devices, so what are end users to do? The only recourse end users/asset owners have is to leverage existing knowledge bases such as the NVD and by reaching out to the device manufacturers themselves to identify any vulnerabilities and risks. In this presentation, Tom Pace, co-founder & CEO of NetRise will highlight how this is not enough. These datasets and even the knowledge from the manufacturer are insufficient to properly ascertain the level of risk that is present. Thousands of well-known vulnerabilities exist in ICS and OT devices that asset owners are completely blind to. Tom will highlight the true vulnerability disparity that exists for these devices and will explain how to shine a light on true device risk with real world data and techniques that everyone can use when they go back to their organizations.

Attendees will learn how to shine a light on the black box that is ICS/OT devices. Attendees will learn that software vulnerabilities are not the only risks that they should be concerned about. Attendees will walkway with practical recommendations on how to approach this problem on their own.
