Cyber Senate are pleased to announce Omicron Electronics will be joining us for our 7th annual ICS USA online conference (Control Systems Cybersecurity USA. )
Andreas Klien, Head of Business Development Power Utility Communication, OMICRON electronics GmbH, will be presenting:
Case study on cybersecure substation automation system networks
Due to their large number and their often missing protection mechanisms, substations represent a large attack surface of the power grid.
Based on a case study of a substation commissioned and pentested in 2020, this presentation will outline the most important protection and detection measures for substations.
Applying the NIST Cybersecurity Framework in substations
Analyzing the most important attack vectors of substations throughout their lifecycle
Presentation of a new cybersecure substation network architecture design for protecting against these attack vectors
Outlining security measures such as secure remote and local maintenance access, multiple firewall zones on the process level, and intrusion detection
Challenges and requirements when applying IDS at the substation level and how to solve them
