New Delhi, Delhi, India

Crux Creative Solutions Pvt. Ltd., a security research based organization successfully hosted one of the most focused Cyber Security conferences: CyCron, with a focus on Managing Cyber Security threats to SCADA and Industrial Control Systems". The event took place on 24th February 2016 at Hotel Pullman, Aerocity, New Delhi. This Strategic Thought Leadership Platform brought together more than 150 highly coveted Cyber Security Experts to address challenges and map the way forward. CyCron was supported by the leading think tanks in India, including: Indian Smart Grid Forum, Petrofed and Data Security Council of India (a NASSCOM Initiative). PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), a multinational global consultancy firm was the Knowledge Partner for the event. CEO of Crux Creative Solutions PVT. Ltd. Shelly Bhasin emphasized on the need of better coordination between IT and OT teams. During her opening address, she said, “Every country relies on critical infrastructure to provide essential services and Industrial control systems (ICS) are the “nervoussystems” that manage operations and functions for many of these critical infrastructures. As the threat of cyber-attacks are increasing day by day, hence those responsible for designing and maintaining these systems have had to think more and more about security. While technologies are often the focus of ICS vulnerabilities, but the greatest challenge is to resolve the cultural differences related to OT and IT teams. It is important to understand the concerns of your OT counterparts. And establish a team of interested individuals from across the stakeholder groups and have regular meetings to develop the ICS security strategy and goals together. It's important to remember that successful ICS security programs are about people. Organizations that identify an executive-level security leader who is responsible for security across both IT and OT will move faster than organizations that rely on grass-roots efforts.” CyCron addressed to the issues of myriad cyber threats faced by the operators of ICS around the world and addressed topics covering ICSs, including protection for SCADA systems, plant control systems, engineering workstations, substation equipment, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and other field control system devices. CyCron has been sponsored by the following companies: Security Sponsor: Check Point, Innovation Partner: Palo Alto, Associate Sponsor: Cyberbit, Delegate Kit Sponsor: Darktrace, Lanyard Sponsor: Kaspersky.
