Indegy to Present Industrial Cyber Attack Demos at RSA 2017 ICS Sandbox

Founders to Discuss Industrial Cyber Security Measures on ICS Sandbox Stage, Birds of Feather Session and Live Sandbox Demo

NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2017 –  Indegy, the leading industrial cyber security company, today announced it has been invited to participate in the Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Sandbox at the upcoming RSA Conference. Indegy will present a session on the ICS Sandbox stage, lead a Birds of a Feather discussion, and give live demonstrations of the Indegy platform using a simulated ICS attack.

Barak Perelman, CEO and Mille Gandelsman, CTO will co-present a session entitled, “Anatomy of Industrial Cyber Attacks” in the ICS Sandbox that will explain the differences and complexities involved in protecting industrial control networks, and provide best practices for protecting ICS systems from external threats, malicious insiders and human error.

As part of the ICS Sandbox, Barak and Mille will provide live demonstrations of Indegy’s Industrial Cyber Security Platform, showing how it can be used to discover and mitigate threats before damage occurs. The ICS Sandbox at RSA Conference gives attendees the chance to gain practical advice and hands-on, interactive experience on ways to manage threats to smart cities, electric grids and industrial processing plants, including ICS/SCADA systems found in every industry and critical infrastructure. The ICS Sandbox will be located in the Marriott Marquis Golden Gate Ballrooms, adjacent to the Early Stage Expo, on February 15th and 16th.

In addition, Mille Gandelsman will lead a Birds of a Feather discussion entitled, “Best Practices: Securing Industrial Networks” on Wed., Feb. 15 at 7:00AM, that will focus on ICS security challenges and best practices for identifying and addressing cyber threats.

Anatomy of Industrial Cyber Attacks (ICS Sandbox)

WHO:  

Barak Perelman is the CEO of industrial cyber security company Indegy. Prior to Indegy he led several multi-million dollar cyber security projects at the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). He is a graduate of the elite Talpiot military academy and has over 15 years of hands-on experience in cybersecurity and protection of critical infrastructures.

Mille Gandelsman, CTO of Indegy, has led engineering efforts for Stratoscale and spent several years managing cybersecurity research for Israel’s elite intelligence corps. Gandelsman is an IDF Talpiot graduate and has over 15 years of hands-on experience in ICS and cybersecurity.

WHAT:
Inherently different from IT networks, the operational environment in industrial networks poses unique challenges which make it easy to attack, but difficult to secure. In his hands-on session Barak Perelman and Mille Gandelsman will explain the complexities involved in protecting ICS networks and provide a live demonstration of common techniques used to compromise industrial environments, cause disruptions and physical damage. They will also discuss best practices for monitoring and protecting ICS systems from external threats, malicious insiders and human error.

WHEN/WHERE:
RSAC 2017 Session # SBX3-W4, Wed., Feb. 15, 2017, 3:00 – 3:30PM PST
RSA Sandbox ICS Stage  in the Marriott Marquis Golden Gate Ballrooms
