Opening Remarks by Sherilyn Hammond, CEO, ElevateGov & the Executive Sponsors of the 2019 Critical Infrastructure Security Forum
Opening Keynote Session 1 - Incorporating Cyber Informed Engineering design standards for SCADA projects
Speaker: Charley Cunningham, EIS Superintendent, DOU- City of Sacramento
Charley will present his experience on how the City of Sacramento-Department of Utilities is incorporating CIE/CCE ( Cyber Informed Engineering/ Consequence-driven Cyber-informed Engineering ) into our design standards for our SCADA projects. This approach considers potential cyber risks and vulnerabilities during the design phase of a project, as well as the consequences of the same being exploited or compromised. This effort intends to provide an engineered solution up-front, rather than finding a way to mitigate the risk after the fact. In short using CIE/CCE will hopefully result in providing a baked-in solution rather than a bolted-on modification after the fact. This information is a high-level overview of how we have incorporated the CIE/CCE approach into our SCADA Master Plan and are also following the recommendations Department of Homeland Security to use the NIST 800-82 framework regarding standards for Industrial Control Systems for Critical Infrastructure.
Opening Keynote Session 2 - The Cyber Punk’s Juxtaposition: INFRASTRUCTURE RISK: CYBER - PHYSICAL - BIO
Speaker: Carlos Avila, VP Worldwide Sales, GroupSense
Description: Critical infrastructure represents a vulnerable target for threat actors. As technology innovations explode, these previously air-gapped systems are going online. As the traditional security perimeter fades away, it is more important than ever to maintain situational awareness of the most relevant threats. You need visibility into the external landscape so you can understand, prepare for, and respond to these threats. Learn how early detection, validation, and analysis of the threats emanating from the Surface, Deep, and Dark web can prepare you to address impending risks and become more resilient to attacks threatening critical infrastructure.
Expected Outcome: Learn about the external threat landscape and open source tools for threat discovery. Find out how cyber reconnaissance can make critical infrastructure more secure and resilient with intel to help you prioritize security efforts and respond early to confirmed attacks.
Intended Audience: CISO, Security Engineering, Incident Response Team, Security Team
Lunch Keynote Session: Elements of a Cyber Incident & Recovery
Marc Glenn, Cyber Intelligence Analyst – California Office of Emergency Services
Greg Park, Information Technology Coordinator – City of Livermore Police Department
Walking through a hypothetical cyber incident, the presenters will share how steps can be taken to lessen the risk of an incident, and what preparations can be helpful to be ready for a recovery.
