CUPERTINO, Calif., March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Trend Micro Threat Researcher Kyle Wilhoit will present "Who's Really Attacking Your ICS Equipment?" at Blackhat Europe 2013, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
ICS/SCADA systems have been the talk of the security community for the last two years due to Stuxnet, Flame, and several other threats and attacks. While the importance and lack of security around ICS systems is well documented and widely known, this talk illustrates Internet facing SCADA/ICS systems, who's really attacking them and why.
