I don't know who they are.
I don't know what they want.
But what I do know is they have a very particular set of skills...
Skills they have acquired over a very long career.
Skills that make them a nightmare for people with SCADA systems...

SOMEONE will be presenting on Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition systems at the next 2600 meeting.
Could be a well known Irish born actor. It might be Big Bird.
That someone will actually be Mike Toecker.
Mike Toecker, an engineer and computer security researcher in the area of industrial control system security, will be presenting at the next 2600 meeting. He'll be talking about the current state of control system security, common systems and vulnerabilities, and where to go from here.
Industrial control systems (or ICS) are used in large industrial facilities to manage and control chemical processes, electricity production, natural gas facilities and others. Consider this a 101 for ICS Security.
