Still broken after all these years aka Utility Security for Smarties - Doug Nibbelink Converge 2016 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Still broken after all these years aka Utility Security for Smarties
Doug Nibbelink

Maybe you've never stepped foot in a power plant before. Perhaps you've read about Stuxnet and that thing that happened in the Ukraine a few days before last Christmas. You've been doing IT InfoSec for a while now and think you've just about seen it all. Have you (recently) been told to "lock down" a Windows NT 4 box? Are your Solaris mad skillz just as sharp as they were when you were learning how to type? Take a walk back in time and join me for a journey into the strange yet fascinating world of Operations Technology (OT). Learn about ICS & SCADA and the challenges facing OT InfoSec in the utility space from someone who still works in Neverland.

Doug Nibbelink does not enjoy writing about himself in 3rd person, but no one would write his bio. He has worked in the utility sector for 8 years and is currently the IT Security Specialist for the Holland Board of Public Works. Previously he spent nearly a decade in municipal government IT & InfoSec and held positions with two document management services companies back when the floppy disk was cool. In his free time he enjoys camping with his family and learning to play the banjo.
