Cyber Senate 4th annual Industrial Control Cybersecurity Europe conference

Why USB devices are still the #1 source of malware in Industrial Control Systems, presented by Honeywell

This September in London and October in Sacramento, we learn from Honeywell why USB devices are still the #1 source of malware in ICS. This discussion will help you understand how USB devices can pose a threat even without malware, including:
o Surprisingly effective HID attacks
o More advanced threats posed by rogue network devices, serial adapters and more
Participants in London and Sacramento will see real examples of the impact these attacks can pose to ICS, plus Eric Knapp, Global Director of Cyber Security Solutions and Chief Cyber Security Engineer for Honeywell Process Solutions asks “Are these really advanced? Do you even have to worry about this?”

This year all critical national infrastructure are invited to join both shows free as an initiative to further cyber resilience in both public and private domains!

The Cyber Senate announce ICS ISAC Alliance

ICS-ISAC Chair Chris Blask noted that Cyber Senate is an example of an information sharing organization which spans key demographics. “The mission of information sharing involves many stakeholders groups across the entire global community. Cyber Senate captures key thought leaders and works to share information among them and with critical communities. We see Cyber Senate as a highly valuable organization and are pleased to support the good work they are doing.”

Major cyber attack hits Norwegian oil industry Statoil

More than 50 Norwegian oil and energy companies have been hacked by unknown attackers, according to government security authorities.

A further 250 firms have been advised by the Norwegian government that they ought to check their networks and systems for evidence of a breach, The Local reports.

State-owned Statoil, Norway’s largest petro company, appears to be the main target of what’s described as the country’s biggest ever hack attack. Statoil is a major contributor to the Norwegian government’s coffers, and as such – unlike most major oil and gas companies, perhaps – its revenues mainly go to fuel the Scandinavian social miracle rather than funnelling wealth to the usual suspects.

National Security Authority Norway (Nasjonal Sikkerhetsmyndighet – NSM) passed on the warnings after it was tipped off regarding imminent attacks by “international contacts”.
