Industrial Controls are everywhere and control everything.  Can you survive an attack on ICS infrastructure?

Acme Energy Corporation is currently a victim of a cyber-attack. Their attackers have shut down Acme’s industrial control systems leaving their facilities inoperable.

Acme’s assets include Oil & Natural Gas / Liquid Natural Gas, and renewables such as solar and wind farms that work alongside their more traditional components of power generation. Acme’s power grid, ONG and LNG services are all offline, crippling the region without these critical services. Thousands of people are without power and heat. We are determining attribution, but in the meantime, Acme has asked for your help. Will you be able to identify and contain cyber threats while restoring functionality to Acme’s industrial operations?

CISA and Idaho National Laboratory invite you to be a part of the adventure. This escape room contains a series of traditional escape room puzzles mixed with cybersecurity elements. Participant’s skills will be challenged with cybersecurity puzzles involving wireless technologies, RFID, network discovery, industrial control systems, Arduino backed puzzles, mixed reality puzzles and more. With the mix of traditional escape room puzzles, there is enough to do for everyone regardless of the level of their cyber skills. Come have fun while learning more about ICS cybersecurity with CISA and Idaho National Laboratory.
