Securing industrial networks has never been more crucial, but it's not as simple as just patching legacy computers or installing commercial tools. Responding to cybersecurity incidents in critical infrastructure environments poses unique challenges and requires a very unusual set of skills. This lecture will cover key terminology, operational differences, and technology differences between industrial and enterprise environments. Attendees will leave with an essential understanding of the challenges in the space and the skills they will need to develop to make a difference.

About: Lesley Carhart is a Principal Industrial Incident Responder at the industrial cybersecurity company Dragos, Inc. She has spent more than a decade of her 20+ year IT career specializing in information security, with a heavy focus on response to nation-state adversary attacks. She is recognized as a subject matter expert in the field of cybersecurity incident response and digital forensics.

The weekly security seminar has been held every semester since spring of 1992. We invite personnel at Purdue and visitors from outside to present on topics of particular interest to them in the areas of computer and network security, computer crime investigation, information warfare, information ethics, public policy for computing and security, the computing "underground," and other related topics.
