Our Critical Cyber Infrastructure is Under Attack: How We Can Protect it with a Cloud-to-Flash Approach
IoT is playing an increasing role in international infrastructure. If manipulated, they can bring catastrophe to smart cities, telcos, power plants, etc. Thus, ironclad cybersecurity that can protect against a variety of attacks & prevent the intrusion of unauthorized agents is paramount. Common security methods in use may seem adequate, but there are weak points in the processors. For ex., researchers demonstrated the danger & ease of attacks by compromising Siemens Simatic S7 PLCs (industrial hardware controllers used in power plants & production lines), seizing control of the devices to load various logic, change the activation/source codes, & introduce malicious programs€”all inconspicuously. This presentation will use this example to talk about the flaws the processors controlling power plants & factory floors, explain how these flaws can be exploited to cause damage, & demonstrate how a cloud-to-flash approach can protect our critical infrastructure even if the PLC is hacked.
