We had a chance to speak with Marty Edwards, INL Program Manager, DHS Control Systems, Security Program Critical Infrastructure Protection for the Idaho National Laboratory at the 10th National SCADA Conference.
The questions we asked were:
1. Stuxnet hit the headlines in 2010 and altered SCADA security across the globe. What key lessons were learned?
2. What are the key emerging issues facing SCADA teams for 2011 and beyond?
3. What benefits are achieved from attending this event? Is face to face networking lessened with internet communication?
4. Commonwealth countries, Australia, UK, Canada and New Zealand co-operate and share resources to increase SCADA resilience via CyberStorm exercises. Will these exercises need to occur more frequently with emerging platforms such as SmartGrid?
