The security risk to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) networks is systemic and not determined by vulnerabilities alone.
Barak Perelman's picture
It’s a generally known fact that most Industrial Control System (ICS) environments were not built with cyber security in mind because they were designed before the cyber threat existed.
David Holmes's picture
Don’t dismiss the IoT as just a consumer security problem. We have an opportunity to learn from the mistakes of the original Internet and build some security into the Internet of Things, if we act quickly.
Galina Antova's picture
The “red lines” that conventional wisdom once held would prevent disruptive or destructive attacks against critical infrastructure have now been crossed numerous times, and we can safely assume they will be again.
Barak Perelman's picture
Industrial organizations need early detection of suspicious activity like unauthorized network scans, attempts to read information from controllers and other unsanctioned control-plane activity.

As with anything new, you need to prepare and plan for IoT devices being in your environment to maximize the value they provide, while minimizing the inherent risk of these network-enabled devices.
Ashley Arbuckle's picture
To develop a strong security posture while capturing digital value, transportation providers need to ask themselves some important questions.
Ashley Arbuckle's picture
To support digital transformation, security protections must be tailored to fit the specific needs of operational technology (OT) and work in concert with IT security strategy.
Barak Perelman's picture
One of the biggest concerns, if these industrial threat predictions come true, is the likelihood of widespread collateral damage.

Most industrial Control Systems (ICS) lack basic asset discovery and management capabilities common in IT networks.
