systems, announced today that Jacob Kitchel, senior manager of
security and compliance, will be speaking at Digital
Bond's 2013 SCADA Security Scientific Symposium (S4).This year's
event is being held on January 15 - 18, 2013 in Miami, Florida.
Kitchel will host a session, titled "Am I Compromised " and will discuss
ways industrial control system (ICS) professionals can evaluate an
asset's security prior to deploying whitelisting technology. During his
presentation, Kitchel will highlight the relationships between assurance
in binary executables and the traditional resources of risk assessment
data. He will explain how these relationships can be combined to
determine an environment's integrity and devise a methodology for
establishing an "Am I Compromised " Confidence Score.
In his role as senior manager of security and compliance, Kitchel is
responsible for security and compliance strategy across Industrial
Defender's products. Previously, as part of Industrial Defender's Risk
Assessment team, Kitchel performed numerous risk assessment services,
such as penetration testing and vulnerability assessment for customers
in the oil, natural gas, chemical, water and electric industries.
Digital Bond's S4 conference is the event for those wanting to learn and
discuss advanced ICS security topics. It draws the best technical talent
and thought leaders in the ICS security community. With a capacity of
approximately 65 attendees, S4 is designed to engage and encourage
interaction between security professionals.
