The Future of Securing Industrial Endpoints

Control systems are critical to the safety, performance and availability of the national power grid, pipelines and other critical infrastructures. These critical points of control must be forcefully protected at all times—but the systems have some unique operational realities that must be considered.

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.
