“Anatomy of Real-World IoT/OT Attacks and How to Defend Against Them”

The idea of this talk is that it would be educational rather than a vendor product pitch, in which we would describe specific attacks like: the TRITON attack on safety controllers in a petrochemical facil-ity; the nation-state attack on internet-connected IoT devices uncovered by Microsoft; the VPNfil-ter campaign; attack on building access control systems; and others.
