SACRAMENTO, California, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Leading cyber security experts from across the USA will gather in Sacramento later this year for the 4th Annual Industrial Control Cyber Security USA Summit, which will discuss how the US can protect itself from the very real threat of cyber attacks such as the latest discovery Crash Override or "Industroyer," an advanced malware designed specifically to disrupt industrial control systems, which in December 2016 left Kiev in darkness.

Taking place on 3rd-4th October 2017 at the Sutter Club, the conference will see leaders from across the energy and government sectors gather with cyber security experts to create a common voice in protecting critical national infrastructure.

Key speakers will include:

Keith Tresh, Commander - CALOES, California Cybersecurity Integration Center
Billy Rios, Founder - Whitescope LLC
Darren Van Booven, Deputy Chief Information Officer - Idaho National Laboratory
Mary Morshed, CISO - Sacramento Municipal Utility District
Doug Rhoades, Director Information Security - Sempra Energy
Mike Ahmadi, Global Director (Critical Systems Security) - Synopsys
Chris Blask, Chair, ICS ISAC and Director of the Cyber Space Research Institute Webster University
Eric Hull, Principal CIP Compliance Engineer - SMUD
Everardo Trujillp, Information Security Operations and Engineering Manager - Sempra Energy
Chris Maroun, National Director - CyberArk
James Nesbitt, Founder of the Cyber Senate said:

"Recent times have seen several notable cybersecurity breaches globally. The energy industries in the Ukraine, Norway and Saudi have all been well publicised, but there continue to be many that are not reported to such an extent, and the industry are having to defend their assets on a daily basis from evolving threats. Cyber weapons such as Crash Override, Stuxnet, Havex and Black Energy all pose an ongoing threat.

"Set against this context, this conference will bring together leaders from key energy sectors and cyber security subject matter experts to discuss how they can work together to ensure the safety, reliability and stability of our critical national infrastructure by reducing areas of vulnerability, detecting threats early and putting the right plans in place to mitigate the damage caused by any security breaches. Events like this facilitate the information sharing required for the industry to collectively respond."

Cyber Security and Safety for the Digital Railway


What ways are possible to secure a safety-critical system?



Ensuring the integration of cyber security and safety functions for the digital railway is paramount to ensuring the reliability and stability of our critical national transport infrastructure globally. The consequences for economies dependent on the rail sector, particularly in Europe, are significant, from loss of life to massive impacts on shareholder confidence.

Deutsche Bahn will be leading one of the Cyber Senate roundtables on September 12th, discussing "What ways are possible to secure a safety-critical system." Questions we will address include
-Is the usage of a security “shell” feasible and does it provide enough security to the system?
-How can a decoupling of safety and security be realised?
-What interfaces have to be defined?
-What are the KPIs?
On September 12th, 2017 in London, the Cyber Senate will be hosting the Rail Cyber Security Working Group, with Pre Working Group dinner on the 11th of September. This is a unique opportunity to engage in an in-depth discussion on the advancing threat, the reality of security of our future rail networks, the absolute importance of “Security by Design,” and the challenges that bridging IT and OT bring in deploying enterprise facing architecture.

Crashoverride and the importance of information sharing

European and US ICS Cyber Security Summit
View this email in your browser
Dear Colleague

This week security firms Dragos and ESET revealed the malware "Crash Override" or "Industroyer." The malware was tailored to industrial control systems and created to cause disruption according to researchers, the first since Stuxnet.

The first incident of this malware was tied to the attack on the Ukraine Power Grid last year. Experts are saying the cyber weapon could be deployed against critical national infrastructure in the US and Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Modifications of this malware are expected that make it much more likely to succeed in penetrating US and European critical information networks and systems. Currently authorities are working to assess how much threat the malware poses.

Information sharing on this threat to authorities has been applauded, but much more work needs to be done within the ICS sector to ensure visibility over our critical national assets and to detect, defend and respond against attacks. Understanding supply chain risk, IOT vulnerability, convergence of IT and OT as well as integration of cyber security and safety divisions just a few of the key areas. We also cannot lose sight on how we can more effectively train staff, address skills gaps and influence shareholders to take necessary investments in security.

We welcome you this fall to join the Cyber Senate and our strategic alliance partners, the US ICS ISAC, as we further progress our outreach in creating a common voice for the ICS Cyber security industry.

Cyber Senate 4th Annual Summit set to help critical national infrastructure deal with cyber threats

4th Annual Industrial Control Cyber Security Summit will bring together security experts with national asset owners
The 4th annual Industrial Control Cyber Security Summit is set to take place in London in later this year.
Taking place at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, Kensington, on 19th-20th September 2017, the event will bring together experts from all over the world to discuss how to keep critical national infrastructure – such as Water, Utilities, Oil and Gas, Nuclear, Power Generation and the Smart Grid Energy and Transport sector–secure from cyber threats.
The event will occur against the context of continued evolving cyber attacks against critical infrastructure globally, including attacks against energy firms and infrastructures such as the Ukraine Power Industry, the German Steel Plant and the Water Dam of New York City.
Bringing together stakeholders from a range of critical industries with security professionals, the issues discussed will include public/private partnerships, security planning, incident response, supply chain and 3rd party risk, security operations centre development, risk management, the integration of cyber security and safety, IT and OT convergence, the importance of cyber culture, information sharing and how the industry are addressing the skills gap.
Supported by the US ICS-ISAC and moderated by Chairman Chris Blask, speakers include the Head of Cyber Security Operations, Sellafield Ltd, Head of Civil Nuclear Cyber Security, BEIS, Security Case and Strategy Development Manager, EDF Energy, Lead Solutions Architect, Electricity North West, ICS Security Expert Leidos, and more to be announced.
Attendees will include some of the energy industry’s leading end-users from operational and IT backgrounds, government influencers, leading cyber security authorities and some of the world’s most influential security solution providers.
Discussing the event, James Nesbitt, Founder of organiser the Cyber Senate said: “With new threats emerging all the time, all stakeholders have a responsibility in ensuring the safety, reliability and stability of the critical national infrastructure that enables our countries to function and prosper.
“This event will look at all areas where critical infrastructure and cyber security intersect and discuss how industry leaders can manage cyber risks in their organisation by ensuring supply chain security, developing appropriate security measures in specification, operation and design and incorporating good security practices throughout the ICS lifecycle.
“The importance of this issue cannot be underestimated and the nature of the threats against organisations are ever changing. We hope that this event will provide all attendees with an excellent grounding in areas of vulnerability, how to detect threats and how to plan in order to mitigate risk for these essential national assets.”
ICS-ISAC Chair, Chris Blask states “The mission of information sharing involves many stakeholders groups across the entire global community. The Cyber Senate captures key thought leaders and works to share information among them and with critical communities. We see Cyber Senate as a highly valuable organisation and are pleased to support the good work they are doing.”
