Security-related questions for facility tours

A previous post described that our industrial cybersecurity students take at least five tours in their first year.

I created a list of questions that industrial cybersecurity students might ask their tour guide. We look specifically at: Asset inventory, network issues, change detection, external connections, recovery, security, IT-OT gap.

Here’s a sampling:

  • How many different PLC vendors do you have?
  • Has a process ever shut down as the result of a network issue?
  • What procedure is used to make a control logic change (PLC programming)?

The key idea is encourage application of in-class principles to the real world.

It is interesting to hear tour guide responses.

I’ve attached the entire question set in the curricular materials section of the Web site. Happy touring!
