The NFEA Cyber Security conference focus on standards and best practice within the OT area – in a life cycle perspective from engineering to operation.

We are proud to present our keynote speakers Joe Slowik, Senior Manager Threat Intelligence & Detections Eng. at Gigamon and Maite Carli Garcia, Communication Manager & European CCI Coordinator.

We showcase a lot of exciting lectures covering topics of interest for cyber physical industry in Norway and abroad.

Leading standards that apply today will be presented along with how the standards are being applied within different
corporations’ governance frameworks and procedures.

The conference will focus on cyber and safety, and what practical implications it will have for the different businesses. We will also give good, practical examples and experiences from the area of Cyber Security. Both incidents and mitigations will be covered.

    Strategy Game ”Zero Downtime” 0 Downtime: Blackout Edition OT Security Awareness Game from Limes Security Kerstin Reisinger / Thomas Brandstetter

    In the OT cyber security simulation game, you become the defender of your corporate values while working for an electric utility. Several teams compete against each other and learn to simulate OT security reality. The participants learn about current IT/OT threat scenarios and adequate security concepts as countermeasures. In the end, the team that has best mastered the challenges is the winner. The simulation game is moderated by a Limes security expert and the results are briefly summarized after each round. The contestants play in groups at a table with a board in combination with a tablet. No special previous knowledge is necessary for participation and the simulation game is suited for both technical and non-technical audiences

Leif Nixon | Sectra Communications AB

Leif är relativt nyanställd på Sectra, men har mer än 15 års erfarenhet av teknisk IT-säkerhet i alla dess aspekter. Han har bland annat arbetat med incidenthantering, härdning, intrångsdetektion, digital forensik och penetrationstestning. Han har även hållit en rad utbildningar i digital forensik och incidenthantering, och är en populär föreläsare. Han har stöttat polismyndigheter i en rad länder i utredningar av digitala och ekonomiska brott. Han har hackat CERN. Två gånger.

Dr. Ing. Lutz Jänicke | Phoenix Contact

Dr. Lutz Jänicke studied electrical engineering at the Technical University of Berlin, where he also earned his doctorate on simulating electromagnetic fields. In 2002, he joined Innominate Security Technologies AG (now Phoenix Contact Cyber Security GmbH), a competence center for industrial cyber security, where, as CTO, he was responsible for development for both HW and SW for the mGuard industrial firewall ecosystem. Since 2016, Dr. Jänicke has been the Corporate Product & Solution Security Officer with overall responsibility for the cyber security of products and solutions at Phoenix Contact.

Dr. Jänicke is a recognized expert in security technologies and has been involved in many open-source projects. He is active in various committees and bodies that deal with IT security for automation applications, including being deputy chairman of DKE UK 931.1 «IT Security in Automation Technology», the German committee for IEC 62443.
The more informal story of Lutz journey moving from simulating electromagnetic fields to become an OT cyber security pioneer and renown expert is best precented with his own words:
While doing my PhD at TU Berlin I by accident became the system administrator. After my PhD I joined my professor at another university and hence became system admin at both the old and the new institute and had to find ways for remote administration, secure communication etc.

Since at university you have some time but limited budgets, I started writing my own open-source tools and participated in projects like OpenSSL.
The global community simulating electromagnetic fields consisted at the time of about 600 people. To my knowledge it has not changed much. Every year there was a conference where about 300 of us met and talked about the same topics as the year before, with just a few millimeters of advancement. I had the choice to try and earn a professorship and go on this way for the next 30+ years. Instead, I found interest in the advancement of cyber security and took the opportunity to make my side project and hobby into a living. I have so far not regretted the change of field
