SUMMARY: Industrial networks have become victim to a number of high profile hacking activities recently. Electrical utilities have developed standards/regulation to address cyber-security through the NERC/CIP standards and its likely water and wastewater infrastructure will soon need to follow suit. This seminar aims to provide an informative session on the various network hacking techniques often used (one will be demonstrated live) to provide awareness of the problem and then offering up effective solutions to deter such events.
