Richmond AutoSec 2019 Event Announced
October 9, 2019

Hosted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Student Branch at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in collaboration with the IEEE Richmond Computer Society and Cyber Security Club at VCU, Richmond AutoSec 2019 will be held on October 17, 2019, at the VCU West Engineering Hall Auditorium, Room 101, located at 601 W. Main Street in Richmond, Va., from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM. The event will feature a technical panel of security experts answering questions on automation security.

Automation is an ever increasing aspect of manufacturing today, as we try to increase the output of each worker through the augmentation of smarter, more efficient machines. Today’s programable logic controllers are more capable, and as a result, more connected than those of the past. This panel will discuss the business challenges of maintaining the security of these vital systems, as well as the technical challenges, threat profile and consequences of inaction. There will be technical questions asked regarding specific attacks on PLCs, as well as specific business situations that complicate securing them.
