Never Underestimate the Laziness of Adversaries: Lessons from Real World Attacks

Feedback form is now closed.

In the world of cyber security, it is easy to be distracted by the most scary, the most obscure and the most exotic. And while that is positively frightening and arguably very entertaining, it doesn't qualify as a very good way to approach securing the systems, processes and information that your business ultimately depends on. Lessons from real world attacks and attack assignments provide a much more realistic foundation that can inform your decisions.

In this talk, delegates will learn:

  • How adversaries would attack you given their objectives. That could well include RTUs with cellular components, microwave links or physical attacks. But in many cases, the answer is less scary, less obscure and less exotic than we have the tendency to believe. Think systems exposed directly to the internet, or viable pathways from L4 through L3.
  • How you would verify if the above holds true for your organisation as well.
  • How you can avoid common pitfalls in securing ISC/SCADA environments.
  • Best practices for securing ICS/SCADA environments with the above in mind. Should you consider L4 breached and if so, what does that really mean?

So yes, IT may be from Venus, and OT may be from Mars, but they don’t exist in isolation and an undue focus on this difference may lead you to focus on the wrong things or overlook the obvious.
