Session Title | A Framework For ICS Honeypot.

For decades Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) have used computers to monitor and control physical processes in many critical industries, including electricity generation, gas pipelines, water distribution, waste treatment, communications, and transportation. Increasingly these systems are interconnected with corporate networks via the Internet, making them vulnerable and exposed to the same risks as those experiencing cyber-attacks on a conventional network. This workshop is about SCADA/ICS cyber-attacks and security risks. During the workshop, we will focus on the main difference between IT/OT, ICS system components, ICS System Architecture, as well as during our session we will discuss types of honeypots and explore how to build SCADA honeypot systems, incidents in ICS and vendors investment.
