Recent events at ORNL and the knowledge of the use of the STUXNET virus in another country illustrate the vulnerability of advanced control systems to increasingly intelligent cyber attacks. The threat is clearly evolving and escalating, and techniques for mitigation are clearly of interest to the broader accelerator community. Risks associated with remote access must be balanced against operational efficiency and operating models. This talk should review the ongoing evolution of system architecture and security that permit effective facility operation while protecting against such harmful intrusions.
