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 Washington D.C. area with real interest in or responsibility for the cyber security of these systems.

We gather for purposes of education, information exchange, and discovery of new opportunities and even 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: Symposium on Cyber Security in Health Care Systems

EVENT RESCHEDULED DUE TO TROPICAL STORM ZETA POWER OUTAGES AT (CS)2AI HQ For Cyber Security Awareness Month we have a very special event - our first symposium! The (CS)2AI team has put together a half day of content from world-recognized expert speakers. Sign up now to attend the parts you can: https://www.cs2ai.org/meetup-cyber-security-health-care Few areas of modern technology could be argued to be as clearly linked to the preservation and improvement of human lives as medical devices and health care systems. Ongoing digitization and networking trends have exposed these to the same vulnerabilities long familiar from traditional IT and OT environments. From ransomware shutting down hospitals to hacking embedded pacemakers and insulin pumps, having people’s lives at risk sets the bar all the way up for defenders of health care cyber security. Please join us for this free event as leaders in clinical medicine, security research, medical device manufacturing and public policy gather to discuss recent developments in health care cyber security. Join the Discussion of questions including: 1) greatest challenges of securing control systems in health care environments; 2) greatest threats to control systems in HCE; 3) best practices & most effective solutions for securing control systems in HCS Keynote Speaker: Christian "quaddi" Dameff, Medical Director of Cybersecurity at the University of California San Diego & Co-Founder of CyberMed: Standing Up for Cyber Safety: A Call to Action TedX-style speakers and panelists: - Vidya Murthy, Vice President of Operations at MedCrypt: The State of Medical Device Cybersecurity - David Nathans, Product Security Manager for Siemens Healthcare: - Saving lives on a Zero Trust Network - Veronica Schmitt, Assistant Professor at Noroff/ Independent Security Researcher at Medtronic/ Partner DFIRLABS: On a Road to Better Medical Device Manufacturing - Billy Rios, Founder of QED Solutions & WhiteScope: Patient Harm?

CS2AI DC Meeting: Ryan Tappis on "Certifying Smart City Security"

Ryan Tappis is a Managing Director and Cybersecurity practice lead at Northramp where he is responsible for overseeing the organization's cybersecurity consulting accounts. He has 17+ years cybersecurity experience and functional expertise in CISO advisory, security/network engineering, Security Assessment and Authorization, security program planning, and security risk management. Ryan has consulted to numerous federal CISOs and large commercial entity CISOs. Ryan is CISSP, CISM, CRISC, PMP, CPSE, and SCCISP certified and holds a masters degree in Computer Systems Management. He is one of 12 worldwide SMEs responsible for developing the CISM exam and serves as the Lead exam developer for the Smart Cities & Critical Infrastructure Security Professional (SCCISP) exam. He has been featured as a SME in numerous blogs and periodicals including the Washington Business Journal and GovTech blog. The Smart Cities & Critical Infrastructure Security Professional (SCCISP) exam is a brainchild of the Internet of Things Security Institute (IoTSI). IoTSI is an international non-profit formed in the last 5 years with the sole purpose of creating frameworks, knowledge, best practices, and certifications specific to the IoT/critifical infrastructure world. Instead of being another generalized cybersecurity group/certification, IoTSI is highly specialized, with a focus solely on IoT and critical infrastructure security. The SCCISP exam itself consists of 12 domains (Introduction to IoT Systems, IoT Security Engineering, Industry 4.0, Resilience in a Connected World, Privacy and Data Protection, Industrial Control Systems, Security Architecture, IoT Security Pen Testing, Physical Security, Cyber Warfare and Terrorism, Hacking IoT, and Smart Cities by Design).
