Abstract

Blocking Ransomware with SCADA Network Access Verification

 The increasing number and sophistication of cyber attacks against critical infrastructure have reinforced the importance of building resilient cyber infrastructure. Organizations are identifying their critical systems and protecting them with multiple cyber-defense layers. However, many connected systems that form the perimeter of the organization’s network remain exposed. Attackers often exploit the perimeter, leveraging existing networking services and unknown loopholes to reach the network’s crown jewels through lateral movements.

 

In this presentation, we will demonstrate how to assess the risk of lateral movement and harden firewall policies to enforce strict network segmentation through a step-by-step case study.
