Industrial Cybersecurity @ Work

ICS Live Hacking Lounge at the SPS IPC Drives 2013

(PresseBox) (Berlin, Germany, ) At the SPS IPC Drives automation tradeshow from November 26 to 28, 2013 in Nuremberg, industrial cybersecurity specialists Innominate and Compass Security will again present an ICS Live Hacking Lounge. In new example scenarios, Marco Di Filippo and Stephan Sekula, penetration testing experts from Compass Security, will demonstrate how Industrial Control Systems (ICS) can successfully be attacked within minutes via Ethernet, Internet, and the phone network. They will also provide insights into the "HoneyTrain Project" for the realistic simulation of attacks on critical infrastructures such as the automated underground rail system of Nuremberg.

Due to the overwhelming interest last year, a total of six presentations of the ICS Live Hacking Lounge have been scheduled for this year at the Innominate booth 9-532 in hall 9, every day of the tradeshow at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm, with the presentation on Wednesday November 27 at 2:00 pm being given in English language.

"The theoretical awareness for the digital vulnerability of automation technology and the need to protect industrial data communication has significantly increased with the publications of cyber attacks such as Stuxnet and the wiretapping activities of nation state intelligence services. Our ICS Live Hacking Lounge lets you experience these threats and the risk exposure in a practical setting", said Innominate CMO Torsten Roessel, underlining the importance of security measures for networked industrial systems.

Appropriate protection against cyber attacks is provided by the mGuard portfolio from Innominate. The ICS Live Hacking Lounge will therefore include examples of how mGuard products can successfully block the demonstrated attacks.
