A Practical Way to Test OT Security Mechanisms in Real-life Scenarios

IT/OT Convergence is a major challenge for industrial organizations on the path to digitalization.

The volume and variety of security products as well as the standards for OT networks is growing at a fast pace. As a result, the need for deep expertise, required to sort through and select the right systems for specific industry needs, grows even faster.

In our session we will present a promising new initiative designed to simplify digitalization processes and test the efficiency and relevance of OT security tools before they are placed in the network.

We’ll present the results of our latest research which studied the unique Tactics Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) of OT attacks and devised a method to test them in a simulated lab environment.

The research included the implementation of tens of new techniques and OT use cases over a MITRE’s Caldera platform, an open-source advisory emulation platform. The research was further expanded by implementing the recently published “ATT&CK for ICS” model, and also will point some improvements for the existing model.
