HACKER HALTED 2017
The theme for Hacker Halted 2017 is The Art of Cyber War: Lessons from Sun Tzu. 2,500 years ago, Sun Tzu wrote 13 chapters on military strategy. Fast forward to today and we are still learning from those chapters and applying them in our newfound digital age. In an age where war is waged over cables and microchips instead of battlefields, one challenge is defining what war is and when war should be declared. Boundaries are being eroded as the globalization of technology continues its march across our physical landscape. Come learn strategies for Cyber War: Hacker Halted 2017.

How to Hack a Train, Safely: Rail Cyber Risk, Testing Methodologies & Techniques
In this talk, Jim McKenney will discuss how to gain support for cyber security testing, how to apply common frameworks to rail environment and discuss methodologies that could be used to asses cyber risk to operational environments such as rail. Learning Objectives:
1. Discuss how to gain support for cyber security testing
2. Discuss how to apply common frameworks such as NIST’s Cyber Security Framework to field technologies
3. Discuss different methodologies that could be used to assess cyber risk to rail
4. Understand how to build, gain support for similar cyber risk programs BIO:
Jim McKenney is a Technical Director at NCC Group leading research into the Rail and Logistics industries. Prior to joining NCC Group McKenney led operation technology cyber security at CSX, carrying out cyber impact assessments and red team programs on field technologies such as locomotives, rail cars, signals & communications and Positive Train Control (PTC). An advocate of Lean Six Sigma, Jim firmly believes that the best way to deliver greater results is to get into the field; working with and listening to the teams that operate the environment. This results in better defining value, aligning to a common purpose and respecting and developing employees and supplier relationships – all of which help speed the effectiveness of aligning cyber security to the core values of the rail road - safety, reliability, and efficiency.
