Which unlucky industry will be the latest target caught in the crosshairs of cyber attackers? Unfortunately, there are several reasons that suggest mass transit will be the next casualty, and the potential for damage is quite serious.
Barak Perelman's picture
The breadth of attacks targeting critical infrastructure sectors are not only deeper but also broader than originally thought. Most likely, Russia and others want to acquire a “Red Button” capability that can be used to shut down the power grid.

SIS are regularly tested to ensure they meet functional safety requirements; the same regime should be applied to their network security.
Barak Perelman's picture
While TRITON is not the first malware to target industrial control systems (ICS), it does signal that operational networks, which have been largely immune to cyber threats, are now in the crosshairs of attackers.
Galina Antova's picture
Standards have helped keep the domain from being completely exposed to the growing threat, but standards have by no means kept pace with threat actors.
Jim Ivers's picture
The software that controls our infrastructure is vulnerable to attack, and the potential results are far more destructive and pervasive than even science fiction would have us believe.
Barak Perelman's picture
Many systems that support industrial controllers are likely vulnerable to Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities, which affect hardware running in the majority of the world’s computing devices.
Josh Lefkowitz's picture
As many manufacturers continue to integrate automation, IoT devices, and other Internet-connected technologies with their OT networks, they are inadvertently expanding the attack surface area.
