Head in the Sand Defence or A Stuxnet for Mainframes - Haydn Johnson; Cheryl Biswas (Circle City Con 2016 Videos) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Head in the Sand Defence or A Stuxnet for Mainframes
Haydn Johnson; Cheryl Biswas

Circle City Con 2016

You say ICS SCADA we say … mainframes.  In this talk, we,ll show you some remarkable - and scary - parallels between the worlds of ICS SCADA and mainframes.  Notably, that what each system manages is critical to our lives.  And that their worlds are insular, proprietary, and seemingly shut-off to everyone else.  Except for when they aren,t. We know what happens when critical infrastructure goes down. We know what happens when the global economy goes down. Let us present to you Information Security as a proving ground that history repeats itself;  too often we fail to learn from the mistakes of those who came before us. Establishing the similarities between mainframes and ICS SCADA in their cultures, perceptions, and defences,  we extrapolate the future of security for mainframes based on the challenges and failures of ICS SCADA as it has evolved from sequestered to connected.  You,ll learn how ICS SCADA serves as a cautionary tale for securing mainframes against acts of God, nature and man. And we,ll present to you the scenario of a Stuxnet for Mainframes.
