The POWER HACKER – Don’t Let the Lights Go Out – A Look Inside the MIND of a Hacker

Hacking into a Power Station is something that is a scary thought about the possibility of someone being able to turn off the power or damage systems. We have seen major incidents in previous years in which the Ukrainian energy sector was hit by a cyber-attack that caused a power outage for more than 86,000 homes.
This session is a real-world hack into a power station that explains the process on planning and preparation, the major challenges of hacking into a power station, adapting to the risks, the perimeter security, engines and SCADA controls. The session will reveal some of the amazing security as well as some of the most shocking findings that will surely see people put hands on their face. It will share the challenges on reporting the findings to the board and the lessons learned.
It is critically important to know how cybercriminals target their victims, what you can do to reduce the risk and make it more challenging for the attackers who steal your information, your identity or your money or even turn off the power. This session explains how outside attackers or malicious insiders can exploit vulnerabilities using examples such as a compromised email account password that escalates into a full-blown breach of network security.
