The increased connectivity between devices and systems has created glaring vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure industries, which are high-priority targets of nation-state threat actors. The emergence and potency of malware such as Triton must shape technology design for cyber-securing critical infrastructure. Triton’s recent attack on a facility’s Triconex safety instrumented system illustrates how disruptions to industrial control system operations can inflict catastrophic consequences to critical infrastructure, national security, public works, health and safety. In combating threats to both automated systems and SCADA systems, cybersecurity must surpass the basic firewall, perimeter and signature-based defense to monitor and protect all networked system endpoints.

This presentation will explore how deep packet inspection (DPI) enhances control and visibility to the edge of distributed environments, and fills the voids left by legacy Industrial Control System (ICS) devices and technology in SCADA networks.

Attendees will gain insight on:
  • How to fully parse the protocols used for communications without impacting operations
  • How to enforce an application whitelisting policy to protect embedded devices at the network layer
  • Increasing network visibility for external software-based anomaly detection tools
