Cyber security

15th July 2011, ABB Offices, Daresbury (12.00 - 13.30)

Should we be concerned about cyber security risks to our control systems?

Computer System Security has traditionally been the responsibility of the Corporate IT Department driven primarily by the requirements of the Financial and Accounting systems.

Industrial Control Systems first developed as islands of automation using proprietary hardware and software architectures that had relatively few perceived security threats.

We have seen significant change over the past couple of decades so that the majority of control systems are now built using ‘commercial off the shelf’ hardware and software technologies and are these systems are commonly connected into corporate networks and potentially to the Internet.

Recently, the perception of risk has changed significantly with the emergence of the Stuxnet worm in 2010 specifically targeted at Industrial Control Systems.

This presentation discusses how Stuxnet was engineered and what can be done within the Security Management System to mitigate this and other risks.
