From Crash Override to TRISIS, the past decade has made it clear that the threat of cyber attacks on Industrial Control Systems (ICS) is real, and poses a fundamental risk to our way of life. The demand of ICS security professionals far exceeds the supply. But how does a information security professional learn to function in such a different environment? Mark Stacey and Lesley Carhart of Dragos Inc. (who both transitioned from traditional DFIR) will provide an overview of some great ways to learn about the operational and technical aspects of ICS networks and grow one’s skill set without breaking the bank.
