You are cordially invited to a lecture on the topic of 
Control Systems Cybersecurity: Hope is Not a Strategy
Daryl Haegley
GICSP, OCP Control Systems Cybersecurity OUSD Acquisitions & Sustainment, Energy, Installation & Environment

Monday, April 9
4:00 – 5:00 PM

The Institute of World Politics
1521 16th Street NW
Washington, D.C.


This event is sponsored by IWP’s Cyber Intelligence Initiative.


About the Lecture: Every day we depend upon many Control Systems; most now networked and potentially easily exploitable, i.e. utility, water, wastewater, natural gas, facility lighting, petroleum systems, smart meters, building heating and air conditioning equipment, research and development equipment, medical devices, vehicles and fire and life safety systems.  Damage to or compromise of any control system may be a business or mission disabler as disruption of a computerized chiller controller could adversely impact network or data-base servers. Perhaps more concerning and debilitating would be when the control system is used as a gateway into the organization’s information system or the organization’s broader global information networks. Facility Managers, Engineers and Public Works representatives should know the fundamentals and relevance of how automated networks of sensors, actuators and controllers require unique cyber intelligence and security requirements from those used to secure traditional information systems, such as email systems, and insight to how DoD and businesses are addressing the challenges to assure the security of operations, critical infrastructure and mission continuity. They cannot afford to hope that someone else is cyber securing the networks they manage every day.

About the Speaker: Mr. Daryl Haegley has 30 years of military, federal civilian and commercial consulting experience, currently overseeing the cybersecurity effort to secure control systems / operational technology for the Department of Defense (DoD).  He leads DoD policy, security assessments, cyber range capability developments, SECDEF scorecard requirements and Risk Management Framework (RMF) process improvements. Contributing author to NIST SP 800-82 R2 ‘Guide to Industrial Control Systems Security,’ Unified Facilities Criteria 4-010-06 ‘Cybersecurity of Facility-Related Control Systems’ and Springer publication ‘Security of Industrial Control Systems.’
He maintains four certifications, three Masters’ degrees, two college loans & one patent.
