SCADA infrastructure." - Herb Commodore, Duke University
"I learned information that is simply not available anywhere else."
- Gary Rivord, SNL
"Too often we fail to think like the bad guys. The emphasis on
thinking like the enemy is excellent!" - Roy Silvernail, Repware
This is a unique opportunity to discuss Process Control Research

During the SCADA Security Summit, you can attend this special evening
session to find out what's new, what's being worked on, and how you can

Summit, Pre-Summit courses, or the SANS Security 2008 training event
that is also being offered in New Orleans in January
(http://www.sans.org/info/19706), we invite you to attend a special
Problem Solving Symposium. This symposium will be centered on the 5
major concerns that were identified by critical infrastructure security
