1:00 – 1:30 Registration & Coffee
1:30 – 2:00 Martin Scheu, Automation Expert ICS Security at SWITCH

Smart Meter Security
By end of 2027 electrical energy measurement equipment must consist of min. 80% of so called “smart meters”. The measurement system must comply to specific data protection rules. But how about other necessary involved equipment?

Thoughts on how to use the industrial security standard IEC 62443 in this context.

2:00 – 2:30 Carlos Buenano, Solutions Architect at Armis Security

Who changed the code?: Helping operational MOC processes
MOC processes in ICS environments have been designed to manage changes in PLC code. These changes can occur by either expected maintenance routines, engineering improvements or undetected PLC code changes due to cyber attacks. However, until now, it was very difficult to determine when PLC code changes were made and validate if the changes where approved within the MOC process. Carlos will present strategies that can be integrated into existing MOC processes to close the gap when managing PLC code changes.

2:30 – 3:30 Daniel Rudin, Reporting and Analysis Centre for Information Assurance MELANI
Daniel Caduff, Federal Office for National Economic Supply FONES

Actual cyber-threats for critical infrastructures and federal counter measures in the gas- and public-transport sectors
The two federal cybersecurity representatives Daniel Rudin of MELANI and Daniel Caduff of FONES will focus on actual cyber-threats for critical infrastructures, with a special focus on SCADA-controlled infrastructure. What strategies and methods do attackers use, to infiltrate, manipulate or destroy SCADA-controlled infrastructure? What is their motivation and what are the threats to come?

While Daniel Rudin will focus on threats and attacks, Daniel Caduff will present the federal ICT-Minimum-Standards with special focus on the upcoming standards for the gas-supply and the public transport-system, both heavily relying on a functioning SCADA-infrastructure.

3:30 – 4:15 Coffee Break
4:15 – 5:00 pm Roundtable Discussions
3 different tables to discuss different topics. You can chose the one you like to attend and we will change the tables two times

–> Roundtable 1
moderated by Martin Scheu, Automation Expert ICS Security at SWITCH

IEC 62443 – useful in non-industrial environments?”
The industrial security standard IEC 62443 was developed for improving IT security in industrial environments. In this workshop I would like to discuss how the IEC 62443 standard could be used in non industrial areas as well where the standard would need to be improved, respectively extended.

–> Roundtable 2
moderated by Daniel Rudin, Reporting and Analysis Centre for Information Assurance MELANI

Follow up on “Actual cyber-threats for critical infrastructures”


–> Roundtable 3
moderated by Daniel Caduff, Federal Office for National Economic Supply FONES

Follow up on “Federal counter measures in the gas- and public-transport sectors”
