IADC Cybersecurity for Drilling Assets 2019

08.10.19 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

Houston, United States

Nigel Hearne will be presenting: Drilling Down into the Murky World of ICS & Maritime Hacking

With real world vulnerabilities, we will show how cyber-attacks can be carried out against ICS hardware and infrastructure. We’ll look at how a mobile drilling platform could be compromised, to the ease with which satellite communications can be employed to cause disruption and failure, to the way in which passwords can be retrieved from Programmable Logic Controllers.  While we can’t always see where the next attack will come from, we can at least learn from security research and see how it applies to control systems to avoid disruption and reduce risk.
