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 Charlotte area with real interest in or responsibility for the cyber security of these systems.

Once we have enough critical mass of interest in Charlotte, 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: Saved by Ransomware! with Brent Huston

Online event

Join us for a fascinating story of an unusual ICS network incident Brent and his team worked recently. In it, he'll discuss how a successful compromise of an exposed server handed an attacker an opportunity to tamper with some critical infrastructure functions and how the victim was essentially saved by a ransomware infection. The talk will cover the attack scenario, the methodology of the attackers and some interesting IOCs and TTPs that were discovered during the incident analysis. Come and learn how, in this particular case, ransomware saved the day!
