Trust No One: Securing 3rd Party Connections to Industrial Control Systems

Unfortunately, even as operators work to secure their internal systems, the security of their control systems and devices is only as strong as the security of the 3rd party vendors, suppliers, and outsourced services that have trusted to access to their networks. Recent vulnerability reports across critical infrastructure have revealed that with the increase of these trusted communications networks, remote access, vendors, and supply chains are the most likely routs of ingress for cyber threats. 3rd parties may also have less stringent security policies in place, allowing attackers to more easily infiltrate the operational network, and the controls, equipment, and data stores within. So how can organizations secure 3rd party connections to their operational networks while still benefitting from new industrial control technologies? Through real life case studies and guidance from the DHS, FBI, and NSA, this presentation will analyze the anatomy of attacks through 3rd party connections and outline the best practices and technologies available to help mitigate external threats to ICS systems.
