SUNNYVALE, Calif. & ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer in intelligent threat and vulnerability management, today announced that two of its security researchers will present a session on ICS/SCADA security risk assessment challenges at the upcoming Industrial Control Systems Joint Working Group (ICSJWG) Spring Meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
|WHO:||Zach Harding, senior security analyst at RiskSense, is a penetration testing expert who has reversed engineered leaked NSA exploit code.|
|Benjamin Mixon-Baca, Ph.D., research scientist at RiskSense is an expert on threat modeling and develops vulnerability assessment automation prototypes.|
|WHAT:||Industrial Control System (ICS) device failures can result in potentially catastrophic consequences for operational processes, the environment and human lives. So while it is vital to fully assess cyber security risks in industrial environments, most ICS/SCADA systems are fragile to current vulnerability and penetration testing methodologies. In this session, RiskSense security researchers will use two separate case studies to illustrate the challenges associated with using traditional pen-testing and vulnerability assessment approaches in ICS networks. They will explain why relying primarily on automated or passive techniques leads to gaps in security visibility, and present alternative methodologies that provide a more comprehensive view of risks and security vulnerabilities in ICS environments.|
|WHEN:||Thursday, April 12, 2018, 11:20 AM – 12:05 PM MDT|
|WHERE:||Albuquerque Marriott, 2101 Louisiana Boulevard NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico|
