Getting Practical On Addressing Industrial Cyber Risk
Many talks outline important but theoretical activities useful to help minimize impacts from poor industrial cyber security. This is not one of those talks. It's time to get moving, get practical and begin to admit there are big problems with industrial cyber risk.

This talk will share practical lessons from dozens of large organizations as they embarked on this journey across people, process and technology. From getting executive support, establishing clear accountability, and understanding the true extent of the exposure, this session will discuss case studies, prioritization, measures, and how to expand into OT network from real world examples.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn practical steps to take on how to address risks in OT networks
  • Learn what type of concrete measures have worked best for other large organizations
  • Learn how to translate technical risk into business impact and communicate better with boards and C-levels.

Discovering and Defending Against Vulnerabilities in Building Automation Systems
Forescout research recently uncovered several dangerous vulnerabilities in popular building automation devices. This is particularly alarming because these discovered vulnerabilities prove that various controllers and Building Automation Systems (BAS) used for physical access control in hospitals, schools and airports are open to coordinated attack. While malware targeting BAS has not been widely reported yet, the Forescout team strongly expects to see an uptick in attacks, and has used this research to drive our solution innovation.  In this session, Daniel will share the specifics of our research, cover the anatomy of a typical BAS cyber attack and detail what we’re doing at Forescout to ensure coordinated and scalable solutions that identify and thwart threats to BAS systems.

How Can Organizations Gain Situational Awareness of All Devices in Their Environments?
The convergence of IT and OT are putting new demands on CIOs and CISOs as they're being tasked with protecting the entire business ecosystem, well beyond enterprise IT systems. Over the last decade, we have seen malware begin to target non-enterprise devices and industrial control systems (ICS) at an alarming pace.  However, most critical infrastructure and ICS asset owners are ill-equipped for this changing cyber threat landscape. Plus, the number of connected ICS assets continues to grow. This new reality of inter-connected cities, industries and transportation systems has elevated the topic of OT cybersecurity to the executive level of most companies, organizations and governments. Today’s average enterprise requires more visibility and richer integrations between conventional IT systems and new OT security requirements.

Join us at this informative session to learn how Forescout can help organizations gain complete situational awareness of all devices in their interconnected environment.

Reducing Industrial Cybersecurity Risk via a Comprehensive Governance Program
ICS and OT Cybersecurity is no longer a topic in its infancy.  Over the last decade, much of the focus has been around the awareness and technology, and less on people, processes and frameworks.  In this conference, undoubtedly we will again be presented with some great technology and their use cases.  However, organizations also need a holistic view on when, where and how to position these cybersecurity investments.  They also need to be able to articulate the risk reduction, justify cybersecurity investments to C-levels and boards.  In this session, we will analyze the feedback provided by  ICS Cybersecurity professionals  interviewed, on real-world advice they would give to their C-levels in making their OT organization more secure and leveraging frameworks in building their programs.

Learning objectives:
To elevate the cybersecurity maturity of the attendees in understanding and articulating the importance of building a comprehensive ICS Cybersecurity governance program for their organizations, rather than individual stand-alone technical solutions or processes. To learn from real-world advice and experience of ICS Cybersecurity experts.

RF Exploitation: Demystifying IoT/OT hacks with SDR
Recent years have seen a flood of novel wireless exploits, from vulnerable medical devices to hacked OT devices, with exploitation moving beyond 802.11 and into more obscure standard and proprietary protocols.

This session will introduce audiences to the world of RF analysis. As we introduce each new attack, we will draw parallels to similar wired exploits, and highlight attack primitives that are unique to RF. During the session, we'll walk through wireless sniffing, spoofing, cloning, replay, and DoS attacks. These offensive exercises will give one brief idea of how to analyze the devices' security, and the best practices guidelines will help to design them properly.

There will be a demo on "How to reverse engineer RF signals", "Simulation of Dallas Siren Hack", "Silent gigs, quiet clubs or rave parties are a relatively emerging trend which widely works in 33Mhz/863MHz/915Mhz ISM Band, practical demonstration of exploiting such devices".
                                   
Session Objectives
  • Become familiar with common security concerns and attack surfaces in a wireless communication system
  • Understand the ease and prevalence of wireless exploitation, with sophisticated examples
  • Encourage the audience to view IoT devices, security, and privacy collectively.

Fast-Tracking Defense-in-Depth in a New Zealand Industrial Facility
After being approached by an industrial organization wanting to capitalize on a full-plant turn-around and implement defense-in-depth best-practice security controls for their ICS network infrastructure.
Through a tight-timeline, we coordinated two vulnerability assessments (parent-company and
vendor-provided), determined target controls, designed and procured equipment and
implemented zone and conduit controls.

This presentation will outline the process followed to maximize return-on-investment and
minimize impact to plant operations, both during the shutdown and post-start-up. Although the
time-frame was restricted, subsequent plant-wide changes would not be possible for many years
until the next plant-wide shutdown so implementing best-practice design and flexibility was key.
Results and observations from before, during and after the process will be discussed as well as
post-project lessons-learned.

Learning Objectives:
  •  Lessons learnt from a fast-track ICS Cyber security project
  • Key decisions required in design, implementation, operate/maintain and close-out phases

[Panel] Relevance of ISO/IEC 62443 Standards in Industry 4.0
The adoption of Industry 4.0 across various ICS sectors is gaining momentum over the years as organizations want to optimize Internet-of-Things to maximize productivity while reducing cost. In contrast, the development of ISO/IEC 62443 Standards is still evolving and is largely aimed at traditional non-Industrial 4.0 setup. The adoption of Industry 4.0, if unplanned with cyber security, could potentially bypass the concept of Defense-in-Depth, Zoning and Conduits in ISO/IEC 62443 Standards.

Emerging Cyber Security Legislation – How New and Upcoming Requirements Impact Critical Infrastructure
Critical Infrastructure has seen an increase of Cyber Security legislation on a national and on an international level. In addition to this increase, stakeholders now pay more attention to compliance to external standards; and compliance has become a benchmark; even a competitive differentiator. But to organizations this may feel like more effort and attention is put on achieving compliance than actually improving cyber security. In this talk, we will discuss:
  • What new legislation, including Singapore's Cybersecurity Act,  means to Critical Infrastructure
  • How to manage additional and evolving compliance requirements
  • Why compliance for compliance sake isn’t the answer
  • How to use compliance to drive improvement

Anatomy of an Attack: Two Real-World Industrial Control System Attack Vectors and How to Defend Against Them
What are your blind spots when it comes to protecting critical ICS from attacks that can impact production and safety? Compromising a Level 1 or 0 Industrial Control System (ICS) cyber asset is a not a difficult thing to do for someone with knowledge of industrial control systems.

Traditionally, industrial processing facilities have relied on security by obscurity, system complexity, air gapping, network segmentation, and perimeter-based security protection for process control networks (PCNs). Many organizations have put IT-centric security technologies in place that primarily focus on securing Level 3 and 2 systems within the PCN, such as operator systems and workstations.
This IT-centric approach fails to protect Level 1 and 0 production-centric assets sufficiently, thus leaving them vulnerable. This creates a huge blind spot, which leaves industrial processing facilities vulnerable to common ICS attack vectors.

This presentation provides an overview of two simple Level 1 and 0 attack vectors that challenge most industrial processing facilities to defend proactively against. It provides an in-depth examination of the thought processes used by an attacker, along with a detailed anatomy of each attack. It then discusses the required technical controls needed to defend against each type of attack.

Attendees will learn:
  • How an attacker approaches an ICS environment
  • How two real-world attack vectors can lead to process and safety disruption as well as how to defend against them
  • Security controls that protect against these two scenarios

I Own Your Building (Management System)
Despite the rapidly growing deployment of IP-based technologies around us, the security of these deployments remains susceptible to basic cyber security attacks. What began as a small enumeration of the exposure of Security Access Control Platforms on several Internet-connected device search engines, grew into a research project covering several Building Management Systems (BMS) or Building Automation Systems (BAS) and its various sub-categories.

The execution of such attacks enables an unauthenticated attacker to access and manipulate doors, elevators, air-condition systems, windows blinds, cameras, boiler, PLCs, lights, alarm system in an entire building. In the case of this research, more than 10 million people could be affected by the findings presented.

This presentation discusses vulnerabilities found by Applied Risk research team across several BMS components and products from various vendors in the industry. Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified that could result in the total compromise of entire buildings and critical facilities (e.g. banks, hospitals, industrial facilities, government, residential…etc.).

In addition to the discovered vulnerabilities, the process we followed during our research will be discussed. Examples will be given for topics like:
  • Firmware analysis  
  • Device assessment

Securing Critical Infrastructure With Active OT Protection
Today’s manufacturing, oil & gas and utilities for the most part involve standardized, layered systems with in-depth production rules, guidelines, and regulatory oversight. While connecting processes, networks, and applications promises to drive significant economic benefits for manufacturers, this interconnection also creates new cyber threat attack surfaces, including the possibility of safety concerns, operational disruptions and downtime, and costly physical damage to equipment and products. However, majority of operational systems cannot support best practices from IT security.  They can’t be patched routinely, they run outdated versions of operating systems, and their host networks enable unfettered movement for malware and human attackers.  In some cases connections to the corporate network provide a pathway to OT via lateral movement.   Different protocols and systems use enterprise networks and the plant’s operational technology, making them difficult to secure. In 2019 we will face a new set of sophisticated attacks on critical infrastructure.  The elite hackers emerge: well-funded and highly skilled, making it almost impossible for all manufacturing companies to protect themselves.  Hoping you are not targeted is not a proactive security measure.
In this session the attendees will learn from Andres Andreu, CISSP-ISSAP and CTO of Bayshore Networks, what can we do to better protect critical infrastructure with active OT protection, security beyond viability. Adding security to a production environment, while not violating the bounded latency constraints the environment needs to adhere to, is not easy. Modern day ethernet networks operate within boundaries where the traffic flow of data is indeterminate. This means that intervening devices (i.e. security devices) can delay stream data and generally speaking the delays are acceptable. IIoT/OT networks have no such luxury yet need security functionality in order to properly protect their resources and productivity. There is a great and unique challenge in finding that middle ground.

In this session Andres will dive into the impact of active protective action and what happens or the lack thereof is rapidly growing. The session will cover ICS/SCADA mitigation measures and vulnerability assessments and how active enforcement will need to take place to actually secure resources in manufacturing (and most other IIoT environments for that matter) and why Critical infrastructure protection requires active OT security to all endpoints.

IACS Security Audit - Why We Failed the Pentest
Having conducting several security assessment, penetration testing, and security audits, there is a time when we failed the security audits or penetration testing exercise. Worst, is when we failed year after year. Audit reports are written by auditors, penetration testing are conducted by pen-tester, and the person who manages the IACS are the OTs. Reports, results and action items may not address the root cause of the findings. The writer may not have the same experience as the OTs on site. They play different roles with different experiences. I have seen reports that are similar each year from the same organization. Even when governance have been enforced and tracked, yet sometimes things do recurs.

This presentation will discuss:
  • Recurring findings of penetration testing exercises
  • How to assist the auditors / pen-tester on corrective actions
  • Importance of  a Security Baseline
This presentation will help you prepare and defend yourself during audits and penetration testing exercises. Stop recurring findings by reviewing previous reports and implementing long term and short term actions. Making your action plans achievable and not over-promising.  Plus improving your process on developing security baselines and its implementation. With this, you will be able to explain and assist the senior management on the findings and to improve their organizations in coming audit and penetration testing exercise. This will benefit and create more value for the organization during audit and penetration testing exercise.

Establishing Best Practice in the Industrial Cybersecurity Domain in Singapore
Adoption of IEC 62443 in Singapore

The Industrial IoT or Industry 4.0, though just at the beginning of its transformative paradigm shift, will shake up the industrial sector fundamentally in the next years to come. One of the main hurdles for it to unfold its full potential is the protection of data and systems by cyber threats. Although many of cyber security solutions and respective methodologies are being offered already, Industry 4.0 or smart and connected systems, will be deployed on a large scale only, if they are based on best practice. This session will introduce the industrial cyber security standard IEC 62443, its basic concept and application, but also its introduction into Singapore.

Protecting the Systems that Power Our Lives
Security is a journey, not a destination. Take others with you.

A growing number of industries are already integrating networking and digital communications into the OT space by deploying new Industrial IoT (IIoT) devices such as smart meters, automated asset distribution systems, and self-monitoring transformers. It follows, then, that the convergence of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) has become a business imperative.

As this technology advances and converges with networked tech the need for OT security grows exponentially. This session investigates how the OT environment can be safeguarded as the line separating OT/IT environments fades, what is the availability of skilled resources in OT security space, and what organizations need to do to close the security gaps.

Key Focus areas of the presentation
  • What security challenges has the IT-OT convergence brought to ICS security and what are the typical OT cybersecurity risks?
  • Given that cybersecurity is more IT-focused than OT, how do we bring cybersecurity into OT and begin to secure those systems?
  • Are regional enterprises well equipped to tackle OT security threats?
  • There are great disparities between IT and OT environments. So, do ‘OT Security Professionals’ need separate skill sets when compared to Cyber Security?
  • Are such skill sets available in the region for OT security professionals?
  • What further needs to be done to upgrade the skill sets of an organization’s workforce and tackle the issues of OT security?
  • Is it possible to secure industrial networks without disrupting operations or risking non-compliance?

The “Late Mover’s” Advantage in Maritime Cyber Security
Today, we are not short of headlines on sophisticated cyber-attacks in onshore IT and OT systems. The day would come when more attack vectors start to expand and focus on critical info infrastructures onboard ships and rigs. While IMO has stipulated cyber safety mandate by 1 Jan 2021, followed by various guidelines brought forth by shipping and classification bodies, the maritime cyber safety landscape is still in its infancy and is seriously lacking effective actionable insights. What exactly should ship owners cyber-protect their assets cost-effectively? We frequently hear of “First Mover” advantage and not the opposite. In this speaking session, Ken Soh will share his notion of “Late Mover” advantage in cyber safety landscapes, since the best of onshore practices could be fine-tuned for off-shore purposes. He  also cautions the adoption of mainstream traditional cyber protection paradigms which are no longer effective, hence resources should not be wasted by “porting” such approaches and technologies over.

ICS Red Team/Blue Team Training (8AM-5PM) [$]

When: Thursday, April 18, 2019 – 8AM-5PM (US$400 Fee – Limited to 40 Students – Register Now)

What is red team/blue team training?
Security aware and knowledgeable users serve as the “front line” of your overall security posture. As such, training is one of the most essential components of your risk mitigation strategy and overall cybersecurity program. However, without learning cybersecurity from the “hacker’s” perspective and gaining a true understanding of how adversaries attack and compromise ICS networks and assets, you’re only getting half of the picture. Without that other half, you’re essentially blindly deploying generic security controls and “best practices”. In order to have an efficient and cost-effective risk mitigation strategy, you must understand not only where your vulnerabilities are, but also the tactics that attackers will use to exploit these vulnerabilities. Red Team/Blue Team Training provides the opportunity to learn these adversarial tactics in conjunction with the defensive methods; and then students get to apply the skills they learn as they face off in a head-to-head competition, Blue Team (the defenders) against Red Team (the attackers).
The Gamification Difference: It doesn’t take a hacker to play a hacker!
Traditionally, red team/blue (or red team vs. blue team) training has been a significant time commitment, often upwards of five days or more. This can be taxing on constrained schedules and budgets. This Red Team/Blue Team Training uses cutting edge computer gaming technology developed by authors of “Hacking Exposed: Industrial Control Systems”, to offer all the best aspects of red team/blue team training, but in a fraction of the time and without a technical learning curve. Students of all levels can even play the part of the red team, regardless of experience or skill level.
In the end, students discover that defending their ICS networks and assets is more than simply deploying “best practices” and “layered defense”. Students will learn to create targeted defensive strategies (despite having limited resources) against a live opponent who is strategizing against them.
What you will get out of this class:
  • Gain a comprehensive, “big picture” understanding of how all the cybersecurity pieces work together
  • Learn and apply practical industrial cybersecurity concepts in a one-day class
  • Learn vulnerabilities and attack vectors specific to industrial control systems
  • Learn about the methods and strategies hackers use to attack industrial control systems as well as traditional IT systems (NOTE: This is not a technical hands-on “hacking” class)
  • Learn how to deploy efficient and cost-effective mitigation strategies and security controls
  • Learn how to build a complete ICS cyber security program
  • Apply what you’ve learned against a live adversary using the cutting edge, turn-based computer training simulation/game, ThreatGEN™
  • Learn how to respond to, adapt, and defend against active attacks
  • Participate as the blue team and the red team, regardless of experience or technical skill level
  • Taught by industry-leading, world-class experts with years of real-world experience
Intended Audience:
  • Anyone interested in gaining beginner to intermediate knowledge of ICS cybersecurity
  • Anyone interested in gaining a better understanding over the overall cybersecurity “big picture”
  • Cybersecurity managers
  • Upper management concerned with IT/OT cybersecurity
  • Plant managers and asset owners
  • IT cybersecurity staff tasked with OT cybersecurity
