What we're about

Welcome! This meetup dedicated to all professionals involved in Cyber Security for Automated Processes and Control Systems including security for Operating Technology (OT), Industrial Control Systems (ICS), SCADA Systems, Transportation Systems, Building Control Systems (BCS), and even emerging Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems. Our purpose is to connect the professionals in the Greater Birmingham area with real interest in or responsibility for the cyber security of these systems.

Once we have enough critical mass of interest in Birmingham, we will gather for purposes of education, information exchange, and discovery of new opportunities and, yes, perhaps a few happy hours! If you are interested in serving on a committee to help shape this meetup experience, please contact the organizers directly.

(CS)²AI Online™Recast:Navigating Vulnerability Disclosures in an ICS Environment

NOTE: meetup does not integrate your RSVP with our webinar platform. Registration at this link is required: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8119755251269804048?source=10282021MtpEvent

With the increasing connectivity of industrial systems comes the benefits of productivity , operational efficiency and process control. This connectivity also creates potential opportunity for cyber criminals to gain access to critical infrastructure systems and industrial control systems (ICS).

Safeguards against this increasing threat landscape include people, process and technical controls to mitigate and balance the risk against reliability, availability and maintainability of the asset. A key tenant to this equation is vulnerability / incident response for the ICS environment where “patching” is not as common as IT systems and at times, not an immediate option for technical or procedural reasons.

This forum will share thoughts and experiences when a supplier discovers and discloses a vulnerability within a real time operating system (RTOS). We will explore, the evaluation from initial RTOS risk rating to OEM evaluation techniques and messaging of recommendation to end ICS users. We will review evaluation of a vulnerability with no known exploits and discuss how tomorrow's threat landscape is going to require deep and detailed forensics, with a strong vendor/OEM partnership to provide guidance to end-users.

Speakers:
Rob Garry – Executive Chief Engineer and VP Product Cyber Security at GE Gas Power

(CS)²AI Online™: Addressing Threats to Smart Factories(sponsored by Trend Micro)

NOTE: Meetup does NOT integrate its RSVPs with our webinar platform. Registration for this event is REQUIRED at this link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1571245415056679693?source=11032021MeetupEvent

Please join the discussion with us as 40+ year cyber security veteran William Malik takes us through the modern factory, integrating sensors and automation into cyber-physical systems capable of operating faster, leaner and more responsively in ways hard to image a generation ago. With great innovation and connectivity often come new risk considerations, however.

Smart factories merge IT and OT to optimize production while sustaining high quality. Unfortunately, the design principles underlying IT and OT are quite divergent. This presentation will survey current and likely threats to smart factories, and how to manage them.

Speaker:
William J. Malik is Vice President of Infrastructure Strategies at Trend Micro. A graduate of MIT, his history of cyber security work includes leading roles at Gartner, Cognizant, Optiv, and Georgia Tech.
