              Stanford EE Computer Systems Colloquium
                  4:15PM, Wednesday, Oct 12, 2011
Skilling Auditorium, Stanford Campus http://ee380.stanford.edu[1]

Topic:    Control System Cyber Security - State of the State

Speaker:  Joe Weiss
           Applied Control Solutions, LLC

About the talk:

Industrial control systems are used in electric power, water,
pipelines, etc. These systems were designed for performance and
safety considerations, not security. 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.
