Defending our Energy Industry and its Industrial Control Systems against the Cyber Threat Spectrum 

The introduction of the Network and Information Systems Directive (NIS-D) in 2018 was expected by many to be a watershed moment in ICS cyber security, as it introduced robust regulations and processes to secure control systems from cyber threat. One year on however, industrial cyber incidents continue to rise, fuelled by the ongoing increase in threat capabilities and attack methods.

Beyond the immediate physical threat to ICS, 2018 witnessed the development of new attack methods – for example, cyber actors using unsecured systems to target Intellectual Property (IP) and personal data, with targeted attacks on IP making up almost half of all recorded cyber incidents last year.

With industrial control systems continuing the trend towards total automation, and cross-sector global, integrated networks becoming increasingly common, maintaining robust cyber defence remains critical to assuring business continuity.

Management boards and government officials now understand that modern cyber attacks to ICS and SCADA systems are occurring at an alarming rate, these attacks can easily bypass perimeter defences, shut down production facilities, and have a major impact on financial results — as well as major safety consequences.

Legislative entities are also paying attention to these critical issues. In their recent report, the House of Lords and House of Commons address cyber risks to UK critical national infrastructure (CNI) and how to respond to them. EU’s Directive on Network and Information Systems (NIS-D) is the first EU-wide legislation requiring critical infrastructure organisations to implement stronger security and breach reporting for ICS/SCADA networks.

As such Scotland’s Cyber Summit will have a dedicated afternoon focus on these critical issues, with Industry renowned experts including Scottish CNI Chairman sharing their wealth of knowledge.

The programme with a difference

We invite all senior private sector ICT and security professionals to take part in our latest event and to think critically about what’s next for cyber security nationally and internationally.

From 9 am to 5 pm, May 2nd 2019, we will examine how Scottish businesses and institutions are ensuring they have the capacity to protect themselves and others against the catastrophic effects of cybercrime. Join experts, peers, and key stakeholders as we delve deeper into Scotland’s cyber resilience community and the future of our defences.

SAS Blue Team – back door Assault Team Leader, Iranian Embassy Siege, SAS B Squadron, HQ Squadron 23 SAS permanent staff instructor, 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery, security consultant, close protection operative, security manager and film advisor for ‘6 Days’ film, author, speaker and consultant.

Born and raised in Carlisle Rusty joined the military aged 15 in to boy service before at 17, joining the 49 Field Regiment Royal Artillery and remained there for approximately four years.

Rusty volunteered to serve with 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery; completed the gruelling selection process, and at Lympstone received the coveted Green Beret. Within fifteen months of being in 29 Commando, Rusty was asked to become an instructor on the commando training wing.

He applied to join the SAS and in 1977, completed the SAS selection course receiving the coveted beige beret and winged dagger in six months, assigned to B squadron.

In B squadron he faced the threat from Guatemala in the dirty jungle of Belize making three trips of duty. He visited the jungles of Malaya, Brunei, Borneo and Botswana. There were numerous desert training trips to the Middle East, four tours in Northern Ireland on both covert and overt operations, the Falkland Island conflict, four tours on the counter terrorist team and was heavily involved as a Blue Team leader as a lance corporal at the 1980 Iranian Embassy siege in London where he was directly involved with the incidents inside the embassy.

Between 1982 and 1990 Rusty took part in training operations around the world, most of a very sensitive nature. The types of training he did were Special Forces training, bodyguard training at presidential level and counter terrorist training to name but a few. He was a qualified paramedic, demolitionist, a colloquial Arabist and a Malay speaker. In 1990 he was ‘stood to’ for the Stanstead aircraft hijacking (Afghan terrorists seized a jet, flew it to Stanstead airport with 150 passengers aboard, after a few of days of intense negotiations all 150 passengers were released and 60 of them claimed political asylum in the UK). After 13 years with B squadron he went to HQ squadron 23 SAS as permanent staff instructor (PSI). In 1992 he attended Plymouth College and gained a NEBS M Diploma in safety management along with a National Examination body of Occupational Safety and Health certificate (NEBOSH).

From 1992 until present Rusty has worked all over the world or ‘on the circuit’. His jobs included being a diamond mine security consultant located in West Africa, delivering armoured cars to the CNN news crew in Sarajevo during the war and carrying out close protection and surveillance jobs both as a team member or team leader. He was a security manager for the Mobil Oil Company in Algeria, and spent eight years working for Herbalife International of America as an on the road security adviser (58 countries in all at that time and close protection operative for Mark Hughes the CEO and founder of the company).

In addition, he was the security advisor for Mel Gibson whilst making the film Braveheart in Scotland, security advisor and a bodyguard for the Japanese embassy in Afghanistan, provided security in Athens at the Olympics for the American swimming team and the security consultant and personal protection officer for the Japanese ambassador at the Japanese Embassy in Kabul. In Afghanistan he was also a hostile training and security coordinator; once again for the Japanese Embassy. In Europe he was a valuable artwork courier, and in the UK he was a covert and overt vehicle fleet and logistics manager on a sensitive government project. Rusty has also worked on a residential security team and as a close protection operative for dignitaries and VIP’s.

Rusty is married and has two sons.
