Recent Advances in Industrial Control Systems Security


There is a lack of understanding of cyber attacks against Industrial Control Systems and Critical Infrastructure.  There have been serious attacks against power stations in the Ukraine and recently the Triton/Hatman malware has been discovered.

This event is about the latest developments and advances made in Industrial Control Systems Security. The speaker will talk about the current security paradigm of the Industrial Control systems, and will also discuss the recent trends in this area. The main focal points include: 

- Strategies for protecting against potential attacks on critical infrastructure
- Behavioural based intrusion detection techniques
- Process mining based intrusion detection technique
