Technology & Networking in Silicon Valley & the SF Bay Area: Upcoming Meetings, Courses and Conferences

April 2, 2011

Mtg: Cyber Security for Industrial Controls

by @ 9:49 am. Filed under ALL, Communications, Computers/Software

TUESDAY April 5, 2011
OEB Computer Chapter
Facilitator: Ron Kane, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Time: Networking and Optional Food/Beverage ordering at 6:00 PM; Forum Discussion at 6:30 PM
Cost: none (except for ordered food)
Place: Emil Villa’s, 3064 Pacific Ave, Livermore
RSVP: not required

Our discussion will initially focus on the recent reported activities of the STUXNET software worm which reportedly targeted centrifuges in Iran. A compilation of what has appeared in the open public press about what it is, how it may have been introduced, and what it did, will be presented. As time and group interests allows, the discussion will touch on other similar occurrences where operations were impacted by lack of cyber security measures.
We encourage open participation and debate so we can all benefit. Your knowledge of programmable logic controllers, process controls, and industrial computer networks, can help us all appreciate these attacks and better protect our systems.
Join us for an open discussion facilitated by Ron Kane of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and IEEE OEB member (an interested and equally uninformed party who finds this fascinating).
