ATDC Community Room (Room 2525)

Friday, October 6

Come face to face with real solutions. Georgia Tech’s Cybersecurity Lecture Series features Dr. Raheem Beyah from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering for “Out of Control: The Expanded Attack Surface of Control Systems.” Industrial control system networks used in critical infrastructures, such as the power grid, present a unique set of security challenges. The distributed networks are difficult to physically secure, legacy equipment can make cryptography and regular patches virtually impossible, and compromises can result in catastrophic physical damage. In this talk, Dr. Beyah will discuss the expanded attack surface of control systems as well as new ways to secure them. Highlights and takeaways from a multi-year study of distribution substation traffic dynamics by Georgia Tech will be discussed. Dr. Beyah is the Motorola Foundation Professor and Associate Chair in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech, a senior member of IEEE, and an ACM Distinguished Scientist. In 2016, he co-founded Fortiphyd Logic to commercialize some of his industrial control system security technologies. He is an Atlanta native who received his Master’s and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech.

Organized by the Institute for Information Security & Privacy, the free and open-to-the-public Cybersecurity Lecture Series convenes at the Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) in Tech Square for “Atlanta Cyber Week.” The series meets throughout the fall each Friday at Noon on the Georgia Tech campus, August – December. Invited speakers include executives and researchers from Fortune 500 companies, federal intelligence agencies, start-ups and incubators, as well as Georgia Tech faculty and students presenting their research.
