Paper : 

1. Running Blind

The current days industrial control systems are also, in an important proportion, the yesterday’s industrial control systems.

They carry a lot of history and are a legacy of an old industrialist mentality that makes it so vulnerable.

The new Industry 4.0 wave, IoT and all the new developments makes the energy sector for instance run a very tough race.

What is hidden and what is open?

Can we find their problems, what makes them vulnerable and then simply exploit it?

Is this within reach? Maybe it’s already on the Internet?

What do they know of their exposure and how can we help?

What would you do if your critical systems get controlled by outsiders, or your partner’s network also exposes yours? Would you know?

2. Cat and Mouse; with a human touch

The rich and the beautiful realm of financial services is very well thought after by “well intended friends” who try to get in at the cocktail.

They have their ways to also get somehow invited, or may pose as a member of the family.

It is of course a game of Cat & Mouse, so let’s have a look at the cat’s techniques/opportunities and the mouse’s options to guard his cheese, mostly when this happens in a human regulated industry.

Who’s who? Should you also include AI in the mix?

Our proposal is to find out together.
