Defining Industrial Cybersecurity Incidents
Recording Date: January 2021
Cybersecurity for industrial control systems has changed significantly in the past two decades as the question has changed from “who would want to target an industrial automation and control system?” to “which industrial facility will be affected next?” This webinar will review major industrial cybersecurity incidents including: Stuxnet, the attack on the Sadara Petrochemical Facility, NotPetya, and the German Steel Mill. These events and others will be used as case studies to outline how industrial cybersecurity has been shaped over the years, and introduce key lessons learned that will help IACS be better prepared to defend against and respond to cybersecurity incidents.
