April 28, 2011 - PRLog -- NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management (SIEM) solutions, today announced that Eric Knapp, Director of Critical Infrastructure Markets for NitroSecurity, will present at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Industrial Control Systems Joint Working Group 2011 Spring Conference on Wednesday, May 4 from 4:15-5:00 p.m. CDT. Taking place in Dallas, Texas at the Dallas/Addison Marriott Quorum Hotel, the ICSJWG Conference will examine cyber security issues impacting critical infrastructure systems.
With threats propagating further into industrial control systems, maintaining situational awareness across enterprise, ICS and SCADA networks is paramount. This requires the collection and normalization of logs and events across IT and OT systems into a common taxonomy, so that critical infrastructure operators can effectively monitor industrial networks and detect threats and anomalies that span multiple enclaves. In his session, titled “Obtaining Situational Awareness Across Isolated Systems,” Knapp will explore the best practices in data collection, normalization and correlation in order to strengthen security and achieve true situational awareness in industrial networks.
NitroSecurity is the leader in security information and event management within industrial control systems, and has pioneered multiple advancements in ICS and SCADA security monitoring.
