Tech Talks at the Innovation Day!
1000 – 1100
Exploiting Critical Systems and Creating Physical Effects
Presented By: Dr. Jonathan Butts, QED Secure Solutions
Embedded computing devices provide the critical functionalities associated with everything from industrial and manufacturing systems to home appliances, cars and weapons systems. Exploitation of these devices follow an attack path of gaining system access, overcoming software security protections and ultimately manipulating processes to create physical effects. In this talk, Jonathan will walk through how he discovered vulnerabilities in a real-world automated control system. He will demonstrate how an attacker could exploit the vulnerabilities to override the software safety mechanisms and create physical damage.
1100 – 1145
Fort Gordon Cyber District Development
Presented By: Dr. Tom Clark
The Fort Gordon Cyber District is a two-state, seven county regional development that supports both the defense and private sector’s technology, innovation and growth. The Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center, Augusta University Cyber Institute, and the Fort Gordon complex hosting a multitude of cyber-focused units and organizations provide the region with the foundation for a region booming with opportunity for technological and economic expansion. The Fort Gordon Cyber District provides a structure for academia, private industry, and government to collaboratively drive innovation and set conditions for this region to be an incubator of cybersecurity expertise. Come join Dr. Tom Clark in an interactive discussion on how you can be part of this exciting and dynamic opportunity in the Central Savannah River Area.

Presented By: Cyber Battle Lab
Cyber Quest (CQ) is a world-class, Army led, annual prototype assessment conducted in an operationally relevant environment with capability developers, the science and technology community, industry, and academia partners to identify innovative Intel, Signal, Cyberspace, and Electronic Warfare concepts and technologies against capability gaps and learning demands from numerous Army Warfighting Challenges (AWFC). The CQ Experimental Forces (EXFOR) come from FORSCOM, ARCYBER, U.S. Army Reserves, TRADOC CoEs, and other services (e.g. USMC). CQ has an operational scenario with opportunities to highlight innovative potential solutions within a live, virtual or constructed (LVC) environment. CQ encourages collaboration between industry, government, and academic partners to drive results oriented, positive outcomes, and innovative solutions. CQ provides operational feedback so that potential solution, emerging concepts, and capability requirements are informed, improved, or validated.
