An ICS CTF At S4x22

An ICS CTF At S4x22

Reid Wightman used to run an epic ICS Capture The Flag (CTF) event at S4 that had many teams working around the clock in a very competitive contest. The S4 CTF was retired at S4x20, and replaced with the Pwn2Own competition. Still there were many past attendees who...

PLC/Controller Offensive & Defensive Sessions At S4x22

Ten years ago, at S4x12, we sprang Project Basecamp on the world and showed the scope and impact of insecure by design and vulnerable PLCs and Level 1 devices. So it is only fitting that S4x22 has some bleeding edge Purdue Model Level 1 security sessions. It begins...
Women In ICS Security Wednesday

Women In ICS Security Wednesday

Women represent 51% of the population, and 60% of those attending college today. And yet only about 10% of the ICS security community are women. It often is difficult for women to enter and thrive in the male dominated, sometimes hostile, and often intentionally and...

S4’s Why

Last week I read Simon Sinek’s new book, The Infinite Game. Worth reading, although I find his content more compelling when he is speaking, so Audible or YouTube may be the right way to go. This caused me to go back through my notes on Sinek’s Start With...
Limits: S4x21 Cancelled

Limits: S4x21 Cancelled

Perhaps it’s my fault for tempting fate with the tag line “No Limits” for S4x21. We were expanding the event into a second building and relooking at every aspect of the event with new eyes and No Limits. Unfortunately there are Limits to holding an...
