OT Track
10:00 - 10:45a

CyOTE - Methodology for Cybersecurity in Operational Technology Environments
Learn how The Department of Energy is working with energy sector asset owners and operators (AOOs), partners, and INL to develop capabilities for AOOs to independently identify adversarial tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) within their operational technology (OT) environments. CyOTETM seeks to tie anomalies in operations to the TTPs that indicate a cyber-attack. By stringing together multiple techniques in the OT environment, AOOs can identify attack campaigns earlier, with more certainty, and with ever-decreasing impacts.

Operating a safe and reliable system has become increasingly complex in the last 10 years.  Gone are the days where logical isolation and security by obscurity could be relied on to ensure safety from cyber threats.  Today’s asset owners and operators need new methods tools to meet these challenges while maintain the high standards of reliability that the public and the economy have come to rely on.  This presentation will cover how the landscape has changed over the past 10 years and discuss some ways that owners and operators can engineer resiliency solutions to prioritize activities and reduce these risks.

Unified IT-OT Risk Assessments
Security is defined by the threat; resilience is the concrete result of your action (or inaction). And the threat is always changing. How do we understand and model the threat’s access and impact across our enterprise to give realistic, actionable insights? We will deconstruct real-world ICS incidents, case studies, and exercises to show the process and the results that work.
