Recently published by McGraw-Hill, "ICS Hacking Exposed" follows in the same spirit as the wildly popular "Hacking Exposed" series, as it explores cybersecurity from an attacker's perspective. Led by the book's lead author, Clint Bodungen, a senior researcher in critical infrastructure threat analysis, this educational webcast will describe how to implement an ICS-focused risk mitigation framework that's practical, efficient and based on situational awareness.

Clint is an experienced ICS/SCADA/OT security professional who will cover key topics from the book including ICS terminology; ICS risk assessment frameworks; examples of ICS vulnerabilities, threats and consequences; and how to use threat modeling to turn ICS threat information into actionable threat intelligence.

Phil Neray, VP of Industrial Cybersecurity at CyberX, will also provide an overview of the company's ICS threat intelligence research including Operation BugDrop, BlackEnergy3, the Mirai botnet, and RADIATION.
