Abstract: Control Systems are responsible for the safe and reliable governing of physical processes, and are designed to report conditions that could affect reliable operations to operators for action. These conditions may vary in their severity, from minor inconveniences to those that can bring the process to a full halt. While engineers have predicted certain events and consequences, others are “unknown unknowns”, and may only be detected due to variances from normal function.
Cyber security conditions are similar in nature. Cyber security conditions can vary in severity and cyber security professionals can classify and alert on some, but not all cyber security events. In this presentation, Michael Toecker will discuss cyber security conditions that are known, and that could be integrated into the operational display.
Treating cyber security events as analogous to control system events has many benefits and drawbacks, and Toecker will expand on criteria for determining what is appropriate for an operator display, and what is not. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate that cyber security can have a place in operational decisions, so long as conditions are carefully analyzed and response actions developed beforehand.
