"End-to-End: How Attackers Really View & Target ICS/SCADA Management Backends" by Julian Ho

On 5th September 2013 Edgis' Sharing Session, Director of ThinkSECURE shared about "how attackers really view & target ICS/SCADA management backends".


This presentation and practical demonstration examines methodologies an attacker uses to engage specific target organisations running ICS/SCADA systems and looks at how modern ICS/SCADA management backends are no different from regular IT-based systems and thus present no new challenges to attackers.
