The 4th International Symposium for Industrial Control System & SCADA Cyber Security Research (ICS-CSR) brings together researchers with an interest in the security of industrial control systems in light of their increasing exposure to cyber-space. ICS-CSR is a research conference aimed at high-quality academic research in the cyber security of industrial control system from the hardware, system and human-factor perspectives. The papers in this proceedings range from defence-in-depth concepts for ICS and ICS security scanners, runtime monitoring, firewall performance for industrial applications and forensic readiness for SCADA/ICS incident response. This year, ICS-CSR also has an emphasis on smart grid security topics.
Dr Helge Janicke is a Reader in Computer Science at De Montfort University, Leicester (UK). He is heading the Software Technology Research Laboratory and is leading research on cyber security. His research interests are in particular the cyber security of industrial control systems, access control and policy-based system management. He is chairing the International Symposium on ICS and SCADA Cyber Security Research and has published widely in this area of research.
Dr Kevin Jones is the Research Team Lead for Airbus Group Innovations Cyber Operations. He is active in the cyber security research community and holds a number of patents within the domain. He has many years’ experience in consultancy to aid organisations in achieving accreditation to ISO27001 Standard on Information Security Management and lecturing in cyber security. Kevin joined Airbus Group in 2011 where he has worked on risk assessments, security architectures, and cyber operations in ICS/SCADA systems and critical national infrastructure (CNI). He is a Member of BCS, IEEE and ISC2 and is accredited as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and ISO27001 Lead Auditor.
Prof Thomas Brandstetter is lecturing at the University of Applied Sciences St. Poelten, Austria, where he teaches classes such as industrial security, penetration testing, botnets and honeypots as well as CERTs and incident response. Besides his academic work, he is co-founder and GM of Limes Security, a cyber security consulting company specialising in industrial security. He is also a community instructor for the SANS Institute. His noteworthy former positions include Head of Siemens ProductCERT, Program manager of the Siemens Hack-Proof Products Program and he was also the official incident handler for the Stuxnet malware at Siemens. He is a CISSP, GICSP and holds academic degrees in IT security and business administrations.
