Summary : SCADA and Process Control Systems are used to monitor and control several parts of our critical infrastructure, such as production and distribution of electricity, oil, gas and water. Our society depends on these systems, but can we trust them to be secured against threats such as terrorists, disgruntled employees, malware and hackers? In this talk, Erik will give a walkthrough of several types of vulnerabilities and other IT security related problems that can exist in SCADA and Control Systems. He will also give his view of what is needed in order to improve the security of our critical infrastructure.
