Emerging Consensus For Industrial Security Engineering whitepaper

Industrial cyber security is changing. In response to this evolution, a discipline of industrial cybersecurity engineering is emerging. Cyber threats to industrial operations have become more capable, the consequences of actual compromises have become more dire, and the potential for unacceptable consequences in the future has become very real. Experts agree that this new discipline includes powerful tools for managing physical risks due to cyber attacks, tools that are unique to the OT / industrial automation space.

While the idea of predictable, future-proof protection from cyber threats is new to many practitioners, engineering experts have been working on aspects of this discipline for many years. In this report we look at the recent evolution of the industrial cyber security field, we review the kinds of security engineering measures that governments, standards, and insurers all over the world are increasingly demanding, and we interpret what this means for corporate governance and expectations of due care.
