With the ARC Industry Forum once again in person this year at the Renaissance Orlando Sea World Hotel from June 6-9, we can continue our extensive OT cybersecurity program. You can find more information about the Forum here and you can register here. Registration is free for end-users. 


Inserting Into the Cyber Kill Chain to Prevent a PLC Takeover

Our Monday cybersecurity workshop program is arguably the best event focused on OT cybersecurity for energy, industry, and critical infrastructure. One of our sponsor workshops on Monday at noon is this session from Armis, where Keith Walsh will guide attendees through the anatomy of a maritime port cyber attack from the perspective of the cyber kill chain, which is a series of steps that trace stages of a cyberattack from the early reconnaissance stages to the exfiltration of data. The kill chain helps us understand and combat ransomware, security breaches, and command and control takeover of critical infrastructure. But how can we identify malicious intrusions and where should we insert into the kill chain to remediate potential destructive behaviors when our OT environments are littered with IoT sensors, cameras, out of date and unpatched Windows machines, and the dreaded shadow connections to IT and the Internet?  

Armis is a leading OT cybersecurity provider that provides a complete platform for OT and IoT cybersecurity, including agentless asset discovery and visibility, threat intelligence, and real time device tracking and risk assessment.  

Session topics include:

  • What does the Google Maps of your enterprise look like?
  • Why device scope matters
  • IT/OT convergence and Industry 4.0

Hope to see you there!
