To extend the capabilities of advanced cybersecurity tools at the centralized production environment, implementing an out-of-band transport network to get visibility into both packet data and syslog traffic can be very beneficial.

Based on existing intelligence, it is reasonable to assume that nation-states already possess all the information they need to launch such an attack on the U.S. power grid.

What is missing from the conversation is how large a role software plays in the IoT equation. Plugging something into the Internet does not make it work -- it just makes it vulnerable.

Since the ratification of IEC 62443, updates to this international industrial controls standard have been published to move systems integration work forward.

Manufacturing supply chains are vital to the development and fulfillment of any modern technology—they change rapidly and locations of suppliers change. This dynamic nature of the supply chain exposes enterprises to a wide variety of risks.

I would like the OT security community to move away from asking what can we do to gain greater adoption of a greenfield IT security model and instead ask how we can gain demonstrable gains in OT security posture more efficiently.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a good first step towards creating a standardized approach to cyber security, but requires many substantial updates before really improving our nation’s cyber resilience.
Marc Solomon's picture
The energy sector requires an approach to cybersecurity that doesn’t rely exclusively on air gaps or point-in-time detection tools but addresses the full attack continuum – before, during, and after an attack.
Mark Hatton's picture
Critical infrastructure facilities are under constant attack, and continuously being probed for defensive weaknesses and access points. To complicate matters, facilities often don’t even recognize when they have been probed or if a weakness has been identified for future exploitation.
