SCADAhacker to Speak at Information Security Trends Meeting in Columbia

I will be speaking on current issues facing industrial control system (ICS) cyber security issues at the Digiware Information Security Trends Meeting scheduled for October 12, 2011 at the Marriott Bogota, Columbia.

My talk will focus on the issues facing ICS/SCADA systems used to control a vast majority of a country's infrastructure, including electric generation (fossil, hydro, nuclear), water/wastewater treatment, energy distribution (pipelines), transportation (rail, traffic), process industries (pharma, oil, gas, refining), and discrete manufacturing.  One point of special attention will be on recent attacks and how to address the new "insider threats" where a malicious outside gains inside access via various tools and then "poses" as a valid user with appropriate credentials!  Identifying and stopping these attacks presents unique challenges that many are not completely aware.

I hope to provide live updates of the conference via my Twitter feed at @SCADAhacker.
