Exploring Potential Attack Methods and Sophisticated Security Defenses for the World's Power Plants
Presented by: Patrick McBride in partnership with SANS
Power generation plants are a major part of the electric utilities ecosystem, and while they vary greatly from each other, in terms of fuel, size and age, all of them utilize OT networks to govern the critical processes that they manage.
This case study will examine potential attack pathways for adversaries targeting power generation plants. It will look at areas to avoid and focus on real-world recommendations on best practices for driving increased security.
