Global cybersecurity expert and chief sales and marketing officer to present behind-the-headlines examination of cyber-attacks on a military control system

Rockville, MD (May 15, 2018) — Ultra Electronics, 3eTI (3eTI), a leading cyber-technology company with products and solutions that secure critical infrastructure in industrial and government markets, today announced that it will showcase its award-winning portfolio at booth# 482 at the AFCEA Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium 2018. The Symposium will be held May 15 – 17, 2018 at the Baltimore Convention Center.

For more than 20 years, 3eTI has secured critical networks and solved complex problems for federal government agencies and branches of the military. Solutions like 3eTI’s CyberFence provide embedded security for industrial automation and control systems to shield infrastructure against cyber-attacks.

3eTI adapts to meet the specific requirements of each deployment, preserving and protecting networks with both embedded endpoint technology and legacy systems. Important to note, is that the company’s solutions exceed DoD IA mandates; 3eTI is the industry’s first company to attain FIPS and Common Criteria certification levels of security.

On Wednesday, May 16 at 2:15 PM, Charlene Mowery, Cybersecurity expert and chief sales and marketing officer, will present “A Behind-the-Headlines Look at Cyber-Attacks on a Military Control System.” During this session, Charlene Mowery will illustrate how attack vectors associated with identity compromise, social engineering and other factors render a military industrial control system (ICS) vulnerable to intrusions that could cripple base operations.

“Few have missed the headlines or failed to appreciate the repercussions of the Stuxnet, BlackEnergy, Havex, Sandworm and Triton/Hatman malware that has been discovered across the globe,” said Charlene Mowery. “There is a dangerous misperception that only nation-states can launch against automated and control systems. The unfortunate reality is that practically anyone can initiate such an assault, from an entry-level civilian employee to a contractor to a hacktivist team.”

Attendees will get an inside, in-depth briefing on the unique vulnerabilities of a military ICS, numerous successful attack methodologies for penetrating a military facility network, as well as proven best practices for comprehensive system cybersecurity.
