Hacking Critical Infrastructure: From Cyber Myth to Startling Reality
Many critical infrastructure systems use antiquated technologies that make them susceptible to hacking and successful compromise. Others have inadequate or misconfigured cyber security protection. To make matters worse, many of these systems are connected directly or indirectly to the Internet. This session will begin with a focus on Cyber Security for Oil and Gas, and continue with a review of real-life, recently successful compromises and exposures of critical infrastructure and includes a live hacking demonstration. Finally, the presenter will provide some simple suggestions to help organizations mitigate the risks associated with critical infrastructure exposure.
