11:30 Understanding and Applying Zero Trust to Protect Industrial Control Systems and IIoT

Presenters: Keao Caindec, Chair, Security Working Group, IIC and CEO &, Principal Analyst/Farallon Technology Group

Manufacturing has overtaken financial services as the most attacked industry. Zero Trust Architecture (US NIST SP 800-207) provides meaningful guidance on how to move beyond perimeter-based approaches to more trustworthy cyber defenses. Both users (employees, vendors and contractors) and resources, such as cloud servers, IoT devices, and control systems, have moved beyond the traditional perimeter. The US White House and OMB have also provided specific directives to all federal agencies to adopt zero trust (ZT) to move to a mindset of “never trust, always verify.”

In this session, we will provide an overview of zero trust architecture tenets and deployment models. We will also examine the pros and cons of various zero trust network access (ZTNA) approaches such as micro segmentation, cloud-based SASE, and software-defined perimeter (SDP). We will also review the applicability of ZT to protecting ICS systems, including legacy control systems and modern digital twins. Specifically, we’ll examine using ZT for improving the trustworthiness for remote access, site-to-site connectivity, cloud, and on-prem networking. Attendees will have a better understanding of how to use ZT concepts and technologies to help organizations to prevent compromised access, unauthorized discovery, and lateral attacks.

The framework provides innovative processes to reduce internal and external organization and process-related frictions during transformation and enhance operational efficiency. By embracing this framework, organizations can improve collaboration between IT and OT teams and make better decisions.

14:00 Review of ICS Matrix including System of Trust

Presenter: Keao Caindec/Farallon Technology Group and Bob Martin/MITRE

We will use the ICS Matrix to examine mitigation approaches to address attack techniques and tactics. The specific commercial offering we will analyze is a commercial drug-production-as-a-service offering.
