An ICS Lab is a critical resource for the vendor / service provider and their asset owner clients. This session describes how Siemens evaluated the ICS Lab security requirements and designed an ICS Security Lab. Gaps are identified, lessons learned revealed and the final design described.
An ICS Lab is an environment that can be made to closely mirror a customer’s deployment for acceptance testing, testing of new features, and very importantly trouble shooting of customer issues. While the primary user of an ICS Lab is the vendor, there are potential connections to the customer deployment that bring significant benefits and security risks.
