For modern industrial control systems (ICSs), cybersecurity involves technologies and user best practices. Four cybersecurity fundamentals are highlighted.
As the IT and OT worlds continue to overlap, take time to prepare your team for the impact of IT security on OT applications.
By applying information technology (IT) strategies and organization, operational technology (OT) can monitor and manage cybersecurity measures more efficiently.
Cybersecurity attacks against manufacturers and other industrial sites are growing and companies need to develop a cybersecurity plan that protects industrial PCs and other vulnerable targets that, until recently, were not connected to the internet.
Connected automation has failed the first rule of cybersecurity (or what Brad Pitt taught me about industrial cybersecurity)
Not so long ago, these industrial control systems (ICS) assets were deployed on separate isolated networks and fell out of the information technology (IT) cybersecurity scope. That's no longer the case.
Industrial control systems require secure remote connections. Did the pandemic help IT to understand OT needs and help OT to see IT concerns about cybersecurity and remote access?
The inability to stop production and a bureaucratic approval process are the main barriers that inhibit industrial cybersecurity projects according to a report by Kaspersky.
There has been an increase in the percentage of systems attacked in the oil and gas industry as well as the building automation sector during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Protecting industrial automation systems is easier when controllers offer built-in cybersecurity features.
The white paper provides a template for conducting a quantitative vendor analysis of PLC, SCADA, DCS or other industrial control system (ICS) offerings.
