More Sessions, More Presenters, More Networking – Australia’s BEST SCADA event

The National SCADA Conference is the premier event for Australia & NZ’s SCADA sectors. It is an annual event to bring the industry together, network, share stories and experiences. Filled with case studies of real implementations and presentations from the best and brightest SCADA practitioners this is an event not to be missed.

The exceptional line up of presenters includes:

Sam Chard, Assistant Secretary, Home Affairs
Dr Kenneth Radke, Senior Technical Advisor, CERT Australia
Dr Stephen Beckwith, Manager Water Conveyance Design, Water Corporation WA
Robbie Cook, Information Management Architect, Transgrid
Mark Loney, Executive Manager, Operations, Services and Technologies Branch, ACMA
Jamie Gabb, Manager National Integrated Operations Centre, APA Group

There is a need to allow vendors to access critical infrastructure control system sites remotely, to assist with emergency maintenance of their products. Recently, countries across the world have realised that by granting remote access to the vendors, they are putting their critical infrastructure in the hands of a foreign country. While the vendors themselves may be trusted, there remain many other issues including opening connections from the control systems to the Internet, and cross contamination between sites and countries that the vendor provides support to.

WORKSHOP 3: CYBER RISK IN REMOTE VENDOR ACCESS
This workshop will aim to develop a protocol which allows emergency remote vendor access, while providing heightened security to the rail operator. Topics covered and explored in the workshop will include the need for the protocol, concepts for the design of the protocol, and known issues with implementing the finished protocol.

Dr Kenneth Radke, Senior Technical Advisor, CERT Australia

Hear groundbreaking new insights from industry leaders who’ve walked the walk, made the journey and learned the lessons of how to achieve best practice, reliable and cost effective implementations that work.

National SCADA Conference is inspirational, educational and eminently exciting.
