A bit late on the September edition of This Month In Control Systems Security due to travel, but all the interviews are from September.
Michael Assante on the National Board of Information Security Examiners (NBISE)
Mike is well known in the ICS security space from his time at INL and most recently as the CSO of NERC. He left that behind, and many other potential opportunities, to found NBISE and focus on workforce development. We begin by talking about why he is passionate about solving this challenge, and the high level team that is supporting NBISE.
Mike gives some great examples and lessons on how people learn and how to measure skills, especially in technical fields. He talks about some of the early projects NBISE is working on including smart grid job performance models.

I provide a brief overview of S4 and more details on Project Basecamp.

I have the opportunity to read the Critical Intelligence Quarterly Reports and pull some gems out for discussion in the podcast. These actually are some of the smaller parts of the report, but they are some items you may not have heard about.
- PG&E’s Security Intelligence Team
- Lockheed Martin’s Palisade product for security intelligence in energy sector
- ICS modules in popular security exploit frameworks with emphasis on GLEG
