“Drilling Down into the Murky World of ICS Hacking”

Presenter: Tim Luck, Consultant at Pen Test Partners

Presentation Abstract:

With real world vulnerabilities, we will show how cyber-attacks can be carried out against ICS hardware and infrastructure. We’ll look at how a mobile drilling platform could be compromised, to the ease with which satellite communications can be employed to cause disruption and failure, to the way in which passwords can be retrieved from Programmable Logic Controllers. While we can’t always see where the next attack will come from, we can at least learn from security research and see how it applies to control systems to avoid disruption and reduce risk.
