“Light's Out!” SecurityMatters’ Hacking Challenge at the SANS ICS Summit

by Harry Thomas

“Overall I think that the CTF put on by SecurityMatters was one of only two CTFs that I have ever participated in that were designed to teach participants rather than test them.

For these reasons, we have built the SilentDefense Splunk Application, which is now available for Splunk users in Version 7.

I feel that these attacks were really significant from the perspective of an ICS Security Engineer, each one reminding us of something relevant.
