Intelligent PSIM- Protecting Infrastructure by Correlating Events, Detecting Anomalies, Leveraging Information from Camera Systems, Badging, and Other Sensors
Tuesday, July 15th, 2014
At an electrical substation near San Jose, CA, the attack began just before 1 am on April 16 last year. Someone slipped into an underground vault not far from a busy freeway and cut telephone cables.
Within half an hour, snipers opened fire on an outlying electrical substation. Shooting for 19 minutes, they surgically knocked out 17 giant transformers that funnel power to a nearby metropolis. A minute before police arrived, the shooters disappeared into the night. Power disruption was avoided by rerouting power from other stations, but the station remained closed for 27 days for repairs.
The SOC noticed sparks show up in the video when bullets hit the chain link fence, but had no context around what else was going on. At the same time the Network Operations group thought they had a network outage when the cable was cut. Neither group had visibility into what the other one was observing. This led to long delays in response and extensive damage.
Join the experts from AlertEnterprise who will discuss how Enterprise Sentry with Intelligent PSIM would have helped put the story together intelligently, and would have sped the time to call police, as well as reduce the amount of damage caused.
