IEEE Atlanta PES Lunch Meeting: “DOE’s Cyber (CyOTE™) program”

January 11 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Program: The Department of Energy’s Cybersecurity for Operational Technology Environments (CyOTE™) program provides a methodology for energy sector asset owner-operators to combine network-based sensor data with local context to recognize faint signals of malicious cyber activity before an adversary can cause higher-impact effects. CyOTE began as a pilot sponsored by DOE’s Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER) in 2016, transitioned to a program in 2019, and in July 2021 publicly released the “Methodology for Cybersecurity in Operational Technology Environments” report. By leveraging the CyOTE methodology with existing commercial monitoring capabilities and manual data collection from broader but informative sources in operations and even in the business domain, asset owners can better understand relationships between multiple observables which could represent a faint signal of an attack requiring investigation. Visibility is necessary, but the importance of visibility is in the understanding and decisions it drives – complicated by infrastructure changes, new technologies, and determined and sophisticated adversaries. CyOTE’s vision is to allow an entity to independently get to the point of making a risk informed business decision on whether to respond to an incident or fix a reliability failure, sooner and with more confidence. 11:30 – 12:00 Attandance and Lunch 12:00 – 12:50 Presentation 12:50 – 1:00 Q&A 1:00 Adjourn Speaker(s): Mr. Sam Chanoski, GTRI Conference Center, 250 14th St. NW, Atlanta, Georgia, United States, 30318, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/296062
