On June 4th, 2009, the third Dutch Process Control Security Event took place in Amsterdam. The event, organised by the Dutch National Infrastructure against Cybercrime (NICC), attracted both Dutch process control experts and members of the European SCADA and Control Systems Information Exchange (EuroSCSIE). A set of plenary sessions and parallel workshops addressed a wide range of topics. Seán McGurk, the Director of the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) discussed in his keynote speech the US Control Systems Security Programme (CSSP). Later, in a subsequent workshop, he answered a set of questions by the audience about cyber security and the benefits of international cooperation. Nate Cube, CTO and Co-founder of Wurldtech Security Technologies, discussed the cyber vulnerabilities of process control systems based upon the Industrial Cyber Security Vulnerability Database. A set of parallel workshops followed. We will highlight some of them.
