Targeted ransomware is the new pervasive cyber security threat to manufacturing - all cyber security attacks that took down automation operations in 2020 were targeted ransomware. In this eBook, Dr. Jesus Molina explores the targeted ransomware kill chain, choke points in the kill chain and how to use those choke points to defeat targeted ransomware and other cyber attacks reliably. The eBook also explores cybersecurity in both brownfield and greenfield automation plants, the influence of IEC 62443 and NIST standards, and the impact of cloud connections and how to deploy such connections without risk to plant systems.
