Deloitte LAB Cyber Intelligence Center (CIC)

See organization →
The Deloitte LAB Cyber Intelligence Center (CIC) is an industrial security laboratory aimed at demonstrating the impact of possible cyber attacks on critical industrial infrastructures. The laboratory has the following objectives: Integrate industrial security hardware and software elements in order to test their operation in a real environment. Test the scope of cyber attacks on industrial elements and protocols, such as PLC, HMI and SCADA. Demonstrate the consequences of these attacks in an interactive model that will have the generation, distribution and consumption phases of a certain service. The laboratory consists of PLCs, HMIs, industrial antennas, industrial switches, industrial firewalls and passive industrial control elements (ICS). These elements form the static part of the laboratory. An industrial network mounted in a rack cabinet designed for both, the evaluation of safety equipment and the control of the assets of the interactive model. Stress tests can be performed, targeted attacks and any proof of concept (PoC) in a fully controlled and monitored environment, in order to evaluate the impact that would have in a real environment. On the other hand, the interactive model can be controlled as a part of the industrial network (static part) or from an independent control element like the HMI, in the "master-slave" paradigm, and can be converted into a mobile laboratory. The set of these two blocks are adapted to the objective of D-LAB: Demonstrate the need of protection against media in industrial environments, from the study to the detail in the generation of an attack. in the complete service cycle (generation, distribution and consumption) to be able to propose solutions based on elements tested internally in the laboratory
