Nina Hesby Tvedt, Secure NOK
Today’s critical infrastructure is faced with security challenges that were unthinkable to most less than a decade ago. As these infrastructures, as well as industrial facilities, are completely dependent on Operational Technology (OT), society’s concern is rising for good reason. Power production and distribution, railway signaling, flight control, traffic light control, water management, oil & gas installations, plants, factories and many more are becoming increasingly vulnerable to attacks, this is driven by trends towards more digitalization, interconnectivity and automation. Some of these systems may be vital to a nation’s security. For all, safe and reliable operation is essential.
This talk will present the threat picture, example attacks, the vulnerabilities and the crucial steps in protecting cyber assets of industrial installations.
