2:10 PM CASE STUDY: Measuring Cyber Risk within SCADA Systems to Build Resilience with Shell QGC

The increasing level of complexity in large technical systems and critical infrastructure demands holistic and systematic risk management. SCADA systems are exposed to a wide range of cyber threats. The nature of SCADA systems requires them to be operating 24/7 which makes regular patching and upgrading of SCADA software and hosting operating system difficult. As such, new unknown vulnerabilities can ultimately break the system. Such a risk is usually something that industries do not want to take. In this session Jason will explore:

  • How to develop effective risk assessments to ensure successful operations within the hardware and software of SCADA systems
  • How to navigate cyber security issues in legacy SCADA systems to avoid negative impact on system safety and efficiency
  • How to establish a cyber-aware culture throughout the organisation to proactively assess and mitigate cyber risks
