On February 16, 2012, an expert panel, led by Joel Langill "the SCADAhacker", held a webcast that featured an interactive discussion about the future of critical infrastructure attacks and how to effectively combat them. Mr. Langill was be joined by Walter Sikora, Vice-President of Security Solutions at Industrial Defender, and Selim Nart, Vice-President of Professional Services at CoreTrace.
During the session, the panelists discussed:
- The future of malware attacks: targeted, purpose-built blended threats that easily bypass traditional antivirus, e.g., Stuxnet.
- Why traditional, reactive endpoint security offerings are ineffective against modern malware and exploits.
- The future of industrial endpoint security: proactive, defense-in-depth protection powered by application whitelisting.
- Case Study: How one company went beyond simple “check box” compliance to truly increase the overall security of its critical infrastructure.
