Traditional IT security technologies, policies, and testing may not apply to these systems. Moreover, there is currently no university with an interdisciplinary program accross multiple engineering disciplines to address control system cyber security. There have already been more than 200 actual control system cyber incidents to date, though most have not been identified as cyber. In the US alone, there have been 4 control system cyber incidents that have killed people, 3 major cyber-related electric outages, 2 nuclear plants shut down from full power, etc. With the advent of Stuxnet, cyber has been introduced as an offensive weapon. The purpose of this presentation is to provide a state-of-the-state view of control system cyber security.
