End User Perspective  - Adventures in the World of Industrial Control Systems

Supporting and securing modern control systems requires a unique knowledge and skillset. Presented by Ben Stirling, an Operations Technology Analyst at energy firm Luminant, this session will discuss a root cause analysis covering a denial of services event, that resulted in the faulting of control system processors. As well as the recovery and lessons learned. It will also address the topic of how to build the knowledge and team to secure the ICS environment. The speaker will share a model for the development of the necessary skill, the consequences of failure, and a call for change. Attendees will have an opportunity to engage in a discussion of the benefits and challenges of implementation of this environment as well as ask questions.

*Luminant has nearly 18,000 megawatts of generation in Texas including 2,300 MW fueled by nuclear power, 8,000 MW fueled by coal and 7,500 MW by natural gas.
