Our speaker for the evening, Sven Burkard, Industrial Networking Solution Manager for Hirschmann (now a BELDEN brand), spoke on network security. He began by noting that 72% of security failures originated in the bottom three network layers: the physical, data link, and network itself. The hardware associated with these layers include the cables, switches, and router/firewalls. He continued with lists of various security incidents in the water, oil, chemical, and power industries. He touched on the Stuxnet virus that compromised centrifuges in Iran, thought to have originated in the U.S. and Israel.
Belden’s Sven Burkard speaks on avoiding compromised plant floor networks.
