Dont Try This Enabling Kevin Mitnick JPL, SunOS 4.13, and SATAN Accessing credit cards Oceanographic hacking FreeBSD and the FWTK The Bad Guys Network Commerce Inc.
Assume breach Preventive controls not good enough Detective controls more imperative as device population grows Security Philosophy Focus on key assets and event detection Mobile security should be carefully evaluated Prevention on the "network of things" will not scale
Emergency response driven by IT disruption What it would look like What we normally do How response is different What we know now How we are addressing the problem Cyber Meets Emergency Services
Local Government Services that affect quality of life, and life Wed like them to be there 6
Credit cards, IP, and Infrastructure Hacktivists, organized crime, and nation-states Capability, meet intent My Perspective
Critical Infrastructure Now the target of most attacks Overall cyber attacks are up, but most dramatically in the last year, the type of attack has shifted away from hacking and financially motivated crime toward cyber espionage focused on critical infrastructure, such as utilities, according to research from communications provider Verizon. These arent about stealing data and fraud, theyre about deny, disrupt and destroy, said Bryan Sartin, director of investigative response for Verizon. In its upcoming Data Breach Investigation Report, a yearly document that is one of the more noteworthy surveys of attacks released to the public, the company found that cyber espionage, once a far lesser component of the attack volume, is now dominating networks. http://www.federaltimes.com/article/20130227/SHOWSCOUT01/130 227002/Critical-infrastructure-now-target-most-attacks
CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE Its good business sense!
Preparedness exercises EOC Activation NIMS: ESF2 and Logistics Branch WebEOC and other IT-enabled methods Role of the National Guard Application of the Stafford Act How We Handle Disasters
Escalation path not defined NIMS difficult to apply Fusion Center as coordination point No FEMA resource list, etc. Mutual-Aid agreements Role of the private sector Whats Different
Exercises – Emerald Down, Evergreen, NLE12 Fusion Center Cyber Analyst (email@example.com) National Guard and State Response Plan for Significant Cyber Disruption CIRCAS FEMA resource typing FBI cyber task force US Attorney Jenny Durkhan State of Readiness
PRISEM Public Regional Information Security Event Management Regional Asset for Situational Awareness and Common Operating Picture
DHS S&T funding to initiate; Five grants total Participants contribute firewall logs, netflow, botnet alerts (Einstein); arbitrary devices under monitoring Commercial SIEM infrastructure at UW APL Cities of Seattle, Lynnwood, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond; Thurston and Kitsap Counties; Seattle Childrens Hospital, Snohomish PUD PRISEM History
Conduct more exercises on cyber disruption Finish the SCIRP Cement the role of the Fusion Center Continue working with FEMA Conduct outreach to the Private Sector Improve information sharing and situational awareness Before the Real Event
Improved resilience Avoiding cascading failures Protect regional infrastructure We learn to integrate Benefits of Preparedness
