Cyber Threats Facing Legacy Control Systems
This presentation will provide an overview of the typical threats facing pumping station control systems from a defense in depth perspective. We will review a typical legacy architecture, discuss how we should address its problems, and what next steps we should be thinking about to secure our industrial control systems.

Senior Electrical Engineer - Mott MacDonald
Nathan is a chartered engineer with the IET and has over fourteen years’ experience in the water sector delivering electrical and control systems designs for UK and international clients from initial, Stage 1 briefs up to Stage 5, construction delivery with a bias towards the controls side. The presentation: Cyber threats facing legacy pumping station control systems - is a wake-up call to all EICA engineers in the water sector and considers the impact of typical cyber threats on legacy pumping station designs in the UK and outlines some basic response to this. The work comes out of one engineer’s reflection of the growing cyber security threat facing industry and the dawning realisation that we as EICA engineers, especially in the water sector, need to take this challenge personally and begin addressing our own skills gaps.
