ICS Bonus Session:

What We All Need to Learn from the Attack on the Ukrainian Power Grid
Speakers: Mike Assante & Tim Conway

This talk will deconstruct the multi-faceted cyber-attacks against Ukraine's electricity infrastructure and provide mitigations. Multiple power outages resulted from a highly coordinated cyber operation against distribution utilities. We will examine media reports and official public sources, as well as map the attacks against the ICS Kill Chain. Learn how attackers developed an approach to hijack and maliciously operate the power system to create outages. The attacks included destructive elements to frustrate power restoration by denying use of the SCADA system and irreparably interrupting communication paths to sub-stations. This talk will provide important lessons learned and implications for any user (not just utilities) of Industrial Control System/Operational Technology.


ICS410: ICS/SCADA Security Essentials:
Instructor: Eric Cornelius
The course is designed to ensure that the workforce involved in supporting and defending industrial control systems is trained to keep the operational environment safe, secure, and resilient against current and emerging cyber threats.

SEC504: Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits and Incident Handling:
Instructor: Mick Douglas

This course provides a time-tested, step-by-step process for responding to computer incidents, and a detailed description of how attackers undermine systems so you can prepare, detect, and respond to them.
