In 2009, Control Engineering released a survey to determine how industrial users perceive threats to their networks, and what steps they’ve taken to defend against cyber attackers. The results then suggested that companies were moving slowly in recognizing threats and preparing defenses, and one out of four industrial users reported that they saw no potential cyber threats that could affect their businesses. Much has happened in that world over the last four years, including Stuxnet and other high-profile disturbances in a variety of industries.

So the question is, have those perceptions changed in the face of what seems to be a more threatening landscape? A new cyber security perceptions and practices survey, available now, duplicates many of the questions from 2009, along with a few new ones that have emerged with the evolving picture. Take the survey here. How do you see the threat? How are you building your defenses?

The results of this new survey will be discussed by two industrial cyber security experts, Matt Luallen and Tim Conway, in a free webcast on June 13, and will be the basis for a Control Engineering article. Luallen is a cyber security trainer and consultant with Cybati and regular contributor to Control Engineering. Conway recently joined the SANS Institute as technical director, ICS and SCADA. Prior to that, he was director of NERC compliance and operations technology at NIPSCO. Peter Welander, Control Engineering editor, will moderate the discussion. The participants will provide situational analysis and suggestions based on the responses. You can make your voice heard in the discussion, and pick up some practical pointers for protecting yourself. When you register for the webcast, please include questions or specific topics you would like to see the presenters address.

Speakers:

  • Matt Luallen, Cyber Security Trainer and Consultant with Cybati
  • Tim Conway, Technical Director, ICS and SCADA with SANS Institute

Moderator: Peter Welander, Content Manager and Moderator, Control Engineering
