With the increasing threat and severity of cyber attacks against the industrial control systems and networks used by manufacturers and critical infrastructure, end users and suppliers alike need to become better informed about the potential risks and outcomes of cyber attacks and the latest cyber security approaches and technologies. To this end, ARC Advisory Group and the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) entered into an informal partnership to deliver a series of workshops designed to help increase awareness of both the problem and potential solutions.
ARC and DHS held the first two of these workshops — an eight-hour, in-depth cyber security training program; and a two-hour management session, respectively — on February 6 at the 2012 ARC World Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida. Both workshops addressed key vulnerabilities that could impact plant availability or safety, provided examples of recent incursions, provided recommended counter-strategies, and highlighted DHS resources to assist owner-operators and suppliers alike in the US and elsewhere.
