Control Systems are fundamental to the smooth functioning of huge areas of developed nations. Most are intended to operate with extremely little downtime and optimally none that isn’t planned for. Incidents do occur from many sources, and impacts can range from simple interruption of service to significant financial impact or even loss of life. Cyber security incidents have complications beyond their immediate impact, requiring forensic research and analysis not only to determine root causes but to ensure removal of threat actors' accesses and influences to prevent further incidents.
Questions addressed will include:
- Who should lead OT cyber security incident handling efforts?
- How does cyber security incident handling in Operational Tech differ from IT?
- What are some best practices to prepare for effective incident response?
- When should internal teams call on outside resources for help?
