Industrial Control Cyber Security Addressed at US Cyber Senate Summit

SACRAMENTO, California, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Leading cyber security experts from across the USA will gather in Sacramento later this year for the 4th Annual Industrial Control Cyber Security USA Summit, which will discuss how the US can protect itself from the very real threat of cyber attacks such as the latest discovery Crash Override or "Industroyer," an advanced malware designed specifically to disrupt industrial control systems, which in December 2016 left Kiev in darkness. 

Taking place on 3rd-4th October 2017 at the Sutter Club, the conference will see leaders from across the energy and government sectors gather with cyber security experts to create a common voice in protecting critical national infrastructure.

Key speakers will include: 

  • Keith Tresh, Commander - CALOES, California Cybersecurity Integration Center 
  • Billy Rios, Founder - Whitescope LLC
  • Darren Van Booven, Deputy Chief Information Officer - Idaho National Laboratory
  • May Morshed, CISO - Sacramento Municipal Utility District
  • Doug Rhoades, Director Information Security - Sempra Energy
  • Mike Ahmadi, Global Director (Critical Systems Security) - Synopsys
  • Chris Blask, Chair, ICS ISAC and Director of the Cyber Space Research Institute Webster University
  • Eric Hull, Principal CIP Compliance Engineer - SMUD 
  • Everardo Trujillp, Information Security Operations and Engineering Manager - Sempra Energy
  • Chris Maroun, National Director - CyberArk

James Nesbitt, Founder of the Cyber Senate said: 

"Recent times have seen several notable cybersecurity breaches globally. The energy industries in the Ukraine, Norway and Saudi have all been well publicised, but there continue to be many that are not reported to such an extent, and the industry are having to defend their assets on a daily basis from evolving threats. Cyber weapons such as Crash Override, Stuxnet, Havex and Black Energy all pose an ongoing threat. 

"Set against this context, this conference will bring together leaders from key energy sectors and cyber security subject matter experts to discuss how they can work together to ensure the safety, reliability and stability of our critical national infrastructure by reducing areas of vulnerability, detecting threats early and putting the right plans in place to mitigate the damage caused by any security breaches. Events like this facilitate the information sharing required for the industry to collectively respond."
