In this pilot episode, Sven takes us through the
emerging field of industrial IoT and how
connecting the grid to the cloud presents new
problems, and new solutions, for security professionals.
How new approaches are needed to gain defensive advantage over already-capable cyber adversaries, to keep up with new OT/ICS technologies, and to serve business risk management needs in increasingly-demanding, competitive environments.
The reason SCADA security is so controversial stems primarily from the intense consequences that come from a compromise in this area. Unidirectional security gateways allow to digitize without compromise.
As operational technology (OT) and industrial control system (ICS) infrastructure have become much more prominent components of national critical infrastructure, malicious hacking activity is increasingly targeted in this direction.
The challenge for modern cyber security engineers working in the OT/ICS area involves modernizing the weak or missing protection controls in existing infrastructure toward more advanced and effective solutions that will stop malicious actors.
Unidirectional Security Gateways can replace firewalls in industrial network environments, providing absolute protection to control systems and operations networks from attacks originating on external networks.
Logs are the baseline information required for quality incident response and forensics. They consist of tracks and hints of the attack and the attacker. How do you keep log repositories more secure than the attacked network?
Modern enterprises transmit control system information to business networks continuously, and need to send information from business networks into operations networks occasionally. How do you do it securely?
Remote control is the modern attack method. While unidirectional gateways are designed to defeat remote control, that doesn’t mean we have to give up remote access. Learn about few practical options.
On IT networks, the focus of a security program is generally preventing the theft of information. The primary focus on control system networks is safety and reliability, and preventing sabotage of those elements.
