How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the PLC Change

Until recently, most of the focus in the ICS security community has been “bolting on” security to the network in the form of firewalls, data diodes, and network monitoring all at the perimeter. Any mention of touching Level 1 devices like PLCs deep inside the network has traditionally been met with gut reactions saying they are too sensitive to handle any extra security functionality, or it is not an effective investment in security. However, there is a wealth of data inside PLCs that can provide tremendous value both for security detections and for everyday troubleshooting. In this talk we will break down common objections we have heard to Level 1 security so we can learn how to stop worrying and love the PLC change.
In this session attendees will learn:
  • Common challenges and concerns when deploying Level 1 (PLC) security
  • Strategies and tests to ensure Level 1 security solutions don’t affect the process
  • Benefits of Level 1 security that far outweigh the costs of deployment
