Critical Industrial Network Monitoring, an Example From the Field: Gas Distribution

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session starts by detailing the specific context and challenges that the utility industries (Electric, Gas, Hydro, etc.) face versus cybersecurity.  Utilities have certain commonalties:
  • Physically Open: Often in the wild without physical protection
  • Connection through an operator network: telecom
  • Long life cycles: update problems, vulnerabilities
  • Targets for both theft and political attacks (disrupting services)
  • Subcontracting: external maintenance, uncontrolled device connections (e.g. the plug that bypasses the firewall for maintenance)
We will then discuss our experiences in working with utility organizations in the area of OT cybersecurity and will use a specific illustrative example from the setting up of a cybersecurity monitoring system on the control network of a medium size gas distribution operator in Europe. This part of the session will cover the specific challenges that the gas operator faced as well as the technical aspect of the solution implemented, the step by step implementation process, the benefits and the lesson learns from this project. 
Who is this session for: Industrial Asset owners, control engineering managers and cyber security professionals who want to learn from a real-life experience in setting up an OT monitoring system.
