VB2019 presentation: Nexus between OT and IT threat intelligence

Posted by    on   Mar 11, 2020

Cyber attacks on industrial control systems (ICS) include the well-known stories of Stuxnet and BlackEnergy and such attacks appear to be getting more prevalent. Late last year, a natural gas compression facility at a US pipeline operator was targeted with ransomware.

Operational Technology (OT), the mission critical IT in ICS, shares many similarities with traditional IT systems, but also some crucial differences that matter to those researching ICS threats and attacks. During the Threat Intelligence Practitioners’ Summit at VB2019, Dragos cyber threat intelligence analyst Selena Larson gave a keynote detailing these similarities and differences.

Today we publish the recording of Selena’s presentation.



Have you researched threats against ICS or built tools ICS defenders can use to monitor their systems? Why not submit a paper for VB2020 in Dublin? The call for papers closes 15 March!
