Industrial Control Systems

Beyond defense in depth.

As ICS environments become more connected, “security by obscurity” is no longer an adequate strategy. Sophisticated adversaries see value in exploiting your assets. Keep operations running and people safe through increased visibility and improve real-time situational awareness.



Securing ICS Environments

Cybersecurity is an ever-changing problem that continues to dominate headlines. The cybersecurity landscape today is littered with threats. Experts and governments have documented a steep increase in cybersecurity incidents affecting industrial control systems. Whether facing malicious attacks from outsiders or preventing unplanned changes by well-intentioned insiders, there is no lack of security challenges. The reality is that there are many different cyber-attack vectors that affect your organization each day.

Control Systems Are a Prime Target

Since the discovery of Stuxnet, Industrial Control Systems (ICS) have become prime targets for these threats. Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), and Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) make up control systems and unfortunately are more often than not designed with little to no security in mind.

Beyond Defense In Depth

While traditional perimeter defenses are needed, the porous perimeters that have arisen from access via WiFi, cellular, mobile devices and IP-everything, open new entry points into the network. Basic capabilities such as event logging are necessary, yet provide only the minimum insight operators needed to protect their assets from attacks and the inadvertent mistakes of well-intentioned insiders.
