Jos Wetzels

security researcher in embedded systems security at SEcura

Jos holds a Master's Degree in Computer Science & Engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He previously worked as a researcher at the Distributed and Embedded Security group (DIES) at the University of Twente (UT) where he developed exploit mitigation solutions for constrained Industrial Control Systems (ICS) used in critical infrastructure, performed various security analyses of state-of-the-art network and host-based intrusion detection systems and has been involved in the AVATAR research project regarding on-the-fly detection and containment of unknown malware and Advanced Persistent Threats.

Jos has spoken at various international security conferences such as Black Hat, USENIX Enigma, Chaos Communication Congress, REcon, OffensiveCon, CanSecWest, Infiltrate, and Swiss Cyber Storm and has assisted teaching hands-on offensive security classes for graduate students at the Dutch Kerckhoffs Institute for several years.

In his keynote at Black Hat Sessions Jos will discuss the cyber-physical attack lifecycle, illustrated by real-world case studies, and how to leverage insights into that lifecycle in order to inform effective critical infrastructure defense strategies.
