Dennis Murphy to Discuss the Importance of Israeli Technology at the Oil and
Gas Cyber Security Conference
FORT WORTH, Texas, June 18, 2014
FORT WORTH, Texas, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Dennis Murphy, of Elbit Systems of America, will participate in a panel
discussion regarding the importance of Israeli Innovation and Technology in
Cyber Security at the second annual Cyber Security for Oil and Gas Conference
on June 18. The conference will be held at the Doubletree, Greenway Plaza, in
Houston, Texas on June 16-18, 2014.
"The global prominence of Israel's technology in the cyber security industry
is increasing," stated Murphy. According to Murphy, Israeli technology has
advanced due to their rapid growth in the oil and gas upstream energy market.
"Israel faces new cyber threats on a daily basis. This constant barrage of
threats coupled with Israel's new focus on oil and gas production has driven
innovative solutions in the cyber security technology sector. The time is
right to capitalize on this technology in the United States and throughout the
globe," Murphy commented.
The theme of this year's conference is "Developing Holistic Preparedness for
the Next Major Cyber-Threat."
Murphy added, "Our parent company, Elbit Systems Ltd., is already providing
solutions for other critical infrastructure high risk systems. Our FIDES
system, which is a distributed automated whitelisting sensor technology, is a
perfect example of a new solution designed to meet the cyber security needs.
It is this need that drives our innovative solutions."
Whitelisting versus blacklisting technology will be one of the areas of
discussion during the conference. Whitelisting will protect the oil and gas
industry by using deep packet inspection on dozens of SCADA protocols to
validate "good" packets and provide customer protection against external
threats, misconfigurations, and internal inefficiencies of their network.
"If a network engineer reconfigures a system inappropriately, our system
immediately alerts critical infrastructure asset owners of the change,"
commented Murphy. "Basically, our solution protects a company from both
internal and external threats by validating the configuration in real-time."
Another area of innovation from Elbit is an interactive training suite of
products that brings trainees through threat scenarios using the same
defensive tools and technologies they will be using at their companies. This
cyber trainer suite has the ability to script a large selection of basic and
complex attacks against an emulated network. The trainee is then responsible
for defending the emulated network. This scenario based training allows the
trainee to learn in a low-risk environment before being responsible for
corporate assets in production.
