Aurora 10 Years Later: Progress, Failure & What Remains to be Learned

Main Stage

In 2007 CNN showed compelling video of a cyber attack causing physical damage to a 2.25MW turbine generator. A cyber attack damaging expensive and important physical equipment. The demonstration was funded by the US Department of Homeland Security and performed by Idaho National Labs.

Ten years after Aurora, we bring together some of the key participants in this demonstration project to discuss:

– what was the original purpose of Aurora?

– what was the short term impact of Aurora, positive and negative?

– where are we 10 years later?

– what lessons remain to be learned?
