On Monday, October 16th, over forty five ISA members and guests came and listened to a presentation on “Creating Realistic Cyber Security Policies for Industrial Control Systems.”
This topic was presented by Lee Cysouw. Attendees were shown relevant examples of ICS security breaches as a context for understanding the probability of attacks vs. the possibility of an attack as well as highlighting the failures of ad hoc security. They also gained a better understanding of how the IOT and IIOT differ in their approaches to cyber security and therefore also differ in their implementation of cyber security. Specifically, they were shown the difference between technology that has security features and security technology and the impact this has on actual network security.
Presenter Lee Cysouw is a Technical Support Manager who works with energy companies to retrieve data out of field devices efficiently and securely.
