Title: Anatomy of an Industrial Attack
Date/Time: Thursday, February 22, 2024, 2 pm ET/1 CT
QUARTERLY INTERACTIVE CYBER ATTACK TRAINING WORKSHOP SERIES
With IT/OT convergence comes an expanding attack surface and more attacks impacting industrial control system (ICS) environments. This has accelerated the need for cyber defense teams to understand, train, and prepare to protect critical infrastructure assets.
This webinar will evaluate a recent attack on a water treatment plant and discuss key takeaways that critical infrastructure operators should be aware of. Learn exactly how the attack happened, what was exploited, and how to remediate it. Gain an understanding of the specific threats and vulnerabilities facing industrial systems, and the skills and knowledge needed to protect and respond to these threats.
Learn how organizations can:
- Understand attack vectors in the complex IT/OT threat landscape
- Accelerate IT/OT convergence
- Ensure IT and OT security teams speak the same language
Attendees will observe portions of the attack and TTPs on the cyber range and be able to ask questions.
