The hackathon will seek to create a knowledge exchange platform on threat identification in an ICS environment through the use big data and machine learning. The concept is meant to elucidate a Cybersecurity solution that identifies vulnerable points in an IIoT system through a machine learning algorithm that makes use of IIoT generated data and defined features. It will also explore the nature of ICS technology, the associated threat landscape and how Big Data processing can help play a role in the security of the overall industrial control systems. In principle, the concept of the challenge will be in the form of “Capture The Flag”. The concept is led by AMNET Cyberdefence Netron in collaboration with @iLabAfrica Research Centre of Strathmore University and VMWare.
