Abstract for topic

Digital transformation across the industrial sector is leading to a pervasive, hyperconnected Cyber-Physical threat landscape where cyberattacks against IACS both directly and indirectly impact the Safety, Reliability and Availability of critical infrastructure and supply chains. In this talk, we propose a paradigm shift in OT monitoring and security referred to as Cyber-Physical Detection and Response (CPDR) that unifies how we monitor, detect, investigate, respond, and recover from incidents. We demonstrate with practical examples, use cases (and a live hacking simulation), how CPDR enhances OT and IIoT security monitoring, is straightforward to implement with your existing tools in your existing IACS systems, to rapidly accelerate root cause analysis and response to process anomalies, system faults, and cybersecurity threats; generating rich IACS situational awareness that helps strengthen collaboration between IT and OT teams. Today and in the future, this may just be the difference between shutting down connected operational systems, or not.
