Meeting Agenda

Members of the Tampa Bay Chapter of InfraGard and Non-Members are invited to attend the Q1 Water, Dams, and Wastewater Sector Meeting.
Our guest speaker, Abdel Hussein, has twenty-five years of experience in Industrial Control Systems (ICS), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Substation Automation, and Operational Technology (OT) cybersecurity. Mr. Hussein worked in several industries, including water, electric, oil and gas, cement, metal, and others. Mr. Hussein has been the SCADA Manager for a large water utility in Florida for the last six years, including its cybersecurity. Mr. Hussein worked for large system manufacturers such as ABB and Schneider Electric, engineering companies such as Black and Veatch, and SCADA systems providers such as Survalent. Mr. Hussein has extensive experience with real-time system architectures, ICS
protocols such as DNP3, Modbus, ICCP, and others; SCADA systems; Distributed Control Systems
(DCS), and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs).Presentation Synopsis:
Securing SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) Systems requires a defense-in-depth
approach. In the past, SCADA systems were air-gapped from enterprise networks which is no longer
the case as SCADA data, and remote connectivity are required for most organizations. This
presentation will provide one of the approaches that can be used to segment SCADA from the
enterprise and segment SCADA internally. The presented approach has been implemented using readily available technologies in a
water utility. The resulting architecture is based on the Purdue model and can be applied to existing or new systems.
