Workshop Description

Establishing Standards And Impacting Economic And Workforce Development

Objectives: To establish a workshop and follow-on activities that brings together a community of practice focused on industrial cybersecurity education, training and workforce development efforts to include government, academia, and industry. We will be leveraging some of INL’s existing research to align training frameworks and assessment frameworks, currently expressed in our CYBER-CHAMP© maturity model and other recent analysis and industry pilots. The workshop is designed to integrate stakeholders and practitioners with similar interest in a consolidated framework, develop common views on career pathways in OT cyber security, and map foundational pedagogical paradigms to educate and train our workforce.

Workshop Goals

  • Foster creation and maintenance of industrial cybersecurity education and training standards.
  • Establish a repository of existing training and education materials.
  • Document gaps for further development (based on preliminary studies and assessments of curriculum and standards).
  • Exchange ideas to implement training and education standards.
  • Build and maintain relationships of trust for standards creation and maintenance across diverse institutions and educators including DHS, DOE, DOD, academia, and commercial entities.

Zachary (Zach) Tudor is the associate laboratory director of Idaho National Laboratory’s National and Homeland Security (N&HS) directorate. INL’s N&HS is a major center for national security technology development and demonstration, employing 550 scientists and engineers across $300 million in programs. N&HS is responsible for INL’s Nuclear Nonproliferation, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Defense Systems and Homeland Security missions. These missions include safeguarding and securing vulnerable nuclear material, enhancing the overall security and resilience of the nation’s infrastructure, and providing protective system solutions and heavy manufacturing of armor for national defense. N&HS supports major programs for the Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Intelligence Community.

Tudor was previously a program director in the Computer Science Laboratory at SRI International, where he served as a management and technical resource for operational and research and development cybersecurity programs for government, intelligence and commercial projects. He supported DHS’ Cyber Security Division on projects including the Linking the Oil and Gas Industry to Improve Cybersecurity consortium, and the Industrial Control Systems Joint Working Group. He has served as a member of the (ISC)2 Application Security Advisory Board and the NRC’s Nuclear Cyber Security Working Group, and vice chair of the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection at George Washington University.

Prior to SRI, Tudor led a team of cybersecurity engineers and analysts directly supporting the Control Systems Security Program at DHS, whose mission is to reduce the cybersecurity risk to critical infrastructure systems. Past assignments include on-site deputy program manager for the National Reconnaissance Office’s worldwide operational network, information security manager for the Secretary of Defense Chief Information Officer Enterprise Operations Support Team; security management support for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; and several seniorl-evel consulting positions including vice president of SAIC’s Enabling Technology Division, and senior manager for DOD programs at BearingPoint’s Security Practice.

A retired U.S. Navy Submarine Limited Duty Electronics Officer and chief data systems technician, Tudor holds an M.S. in information systems concentrating in cybersecurity from George Mason University, where he also was an adjunct professor teaching graduate courses in information security.

Jim Risch, currently serving a second term as Idaho’s 28th Senator, holds a longstanding commitment to public service and a passion for good government. Known for “pragmatic decision-making,” Risch is what his peers call a “no-nonsense, get-the-job-done leader” with more than four decades of experience in elected office. He has been recognized by the National Journal as the “Most Conservative” Senator in the United States Senate.

Risch brings his pragmatic, results-focused approach to governance to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, where he serves as chairman for the 116th Congress. As the lead Republican on the committee, Risch is focused on protecting the security and interests of the American people, in addition to continuing to advance U.S. prosperity and leadership in the world. He is confronting many issues that hit home across Idaho, like advancing the interests of Idaho citizens and businesses in international trade and investment, promoting Idaho exports, guarding Idaho interests in the Columbia River Treaty talks, supporting human rights and confronting the problem of sex trafficking.

During the 115th Congress, Risch served as chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship where he successfully passed several initiatives to improve cybersecurity resources for small businesses, cut red tape and reduce regulations, and improve small business access to capital. He will continue working for Idaho’s small businesses as an active member of the committee during the 116th Congress.

Risch also represents Idaho’s interests on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, giving Idaho a voice in legislation that dramatically shapes the West, and he serves on the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Select Committee on Ethics.

During his service as Idaho’s 31st governor, Risch lowered property taxes by 20 percent providing much-needed tax relief to Idaho taxpayers, while setting aside $100 million in a rainy day fund for schools. He also designed a plan to manage Idaho’s roadless areas and supervised the adoption of a rule that effectively prohibits the construction of traditional mercury-releasing pulverized coal power plants. Both measures earned Risch bipartisan acclaim for his pragmatic approach to natural resource issues and land management.

As governor, Risch also accomplished a number of initiatives to create a streamlined and effective government. He transformed Idaho’s executive office by opening regional offices throughout the state, enhancing communication and responsiveness to Idahoans. Risch also succeeded in a major reorganization of Idaho’s Department of Health and Welfare that allowed for more efficient administration and cost savings.

As a twice-elected lieutenant governor, Risch earned a reputation as an advocate for smart economic development. He continues to work with businesses-new and old alike-to ensure continued prosperity for the people and places of Idaho.

Senator Risch began his career in public service at the age of 27, when he was elected to two terms as Ada County prosecuting attorney. Following his tenure as president of the Idaho Prosecuting Attorneys Association, he served 11 elected terms in the Idaho State Senate. His time as senator was highlighted by his quick election to the leadership positions of majority leader and Senate president pro tempore, serving in the top two positions of Senate leadership for 19 of his 22 years.

Senator Risch earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Forestry from the University of Idaho, and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Idaho, College of Law. He served on Law Review and the College of Law Advisory Committee at the University of Idaho and has taught criminal law at Boise State University. He was a small business owner, a rancher/farmer and senior partner in the Risch Goss Insinger Gustavel Law firm at the time of his election to the U.S. Senate.

Senator Risch and his wife Vicki have been married for 50 years. Their commitment to Idaho and their work together earned them the distinction of being selected as Idaho’s Healthy Marriage Ambassadors in 2007. They have three married sons and nine grandchildren. They live on a ranch outside of Boise and maintain an apartment in Washington, D.C.
