meteoric rise of specialized, targeted malware can catch even the
most experienced security experts off guard. These super-stealthy
cyber-attacks can defeat the best anti-virus/anti-intrusion systems
in the world. This session provides an overview of existing defense

 "The Security Threat to Smart Grid is Worse than
We Think"
 The need to secure smart grid is obvious. After all, who
wants hackers to have the ability to easily turn off all power?
Recent malware like Stuxnet and Flame that target critical
infrastructures are good examples of the looming threat. The
challenge is to secure smart grid in a way that can keep up with
quickly evolving threats.

"We've seen the potentially disastrous impact of attacks on the power
infrastructure in the past year," said Bob Hinden, co-inventor of
IPv6 and Check Point fellow. "In fact the Department of Homeland
Security Critical Infrastructure CERT shows that over 40% of reported
infrastructure attacks were against Energy related infrastructure.
The imperative to secure our smart grids fr
om cyber attacks is
clearer now than ever before."
