Title: ICS Security Assessments 101 or How da Fox I Test Dis?

Presenter: Yael Basurto

Date: August 10, 2022

Time: 2 p.m.

Location: I Am The Cavalry

Abstract:

We have seen many ICS attacks both in the news and in several talks at security conferences. They show how ICS protocols are insecure by default and how we can mess with control components so easily. However, from a consulting point of view, are we really asking our ICS clients to let us mess with their critical infrastructure just to show what we already know?

In this talk, I’ll show how we can scope and address an ICS security engagement aligned with the industry’s needs. I’ll talk about real-world planning, attack surface identification, exploitation, and reporting from the understanding of what is giving value to our ICS clients. To keep things spicy, I’ll also include short demos to better show what we can do for each assessment type and yea some exploitation as well.
