12:00 p.m. â 1:00 p.m.
Come face to face with real solutions.Â Georgia Techâs Cybersecurity Lecture Series features Dr. RaheemÂ BeyahÂ from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering for âOut of Control: The Expanded Attack Surface of Control Systems.â IndustrialÂ 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.Â BeyahÂ 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 dynamicsÂ by Georgia Tech will be discussed.Â Dr.Â BeyahÂ 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-foundedÂ FortiphydÂ Logic toÂ commercialize some of his industrial control system securityÂ technologies. He is an Atlanta native who received his Masterâs and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech.
Organized by theÂ Institute for Information Security & Privacy, the free and open-to-the-public Cybersecurity Lecture Series convenes at theÂ Advanced Technology Development CenterÂ (ATDC) in Tech Square for âAtlanta Cyber Week.â The series meets throughout the fall each Friday at Noon on the Georgia Tech campus, August â 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.
