Cyber attacks to ICS are on the rise. Organizations must improve their cyber security to safeguard their operations and products.
Cyber attacks to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are increasingly common. Critical sectors like oil & gas, power & utilities, chemicals, transportation, mining, pharma and food manufacturing must improve their cyber security to help ensure availability and safety of their operations and products.
Typical attacks to ICS include:
Why should Boards and Management be concerned?
Typically, visibility over ICS cyber risks and security capabilities is limited at the Board and Management level. Some operations teams can believe they are safe because they have safety systems in place, their ICS is air-gapped and not connected to other networks, their operation control rooms are staffed 24x7, or they still use old platforms and serial connections.
That is not enough. Recent cyber-attacks involving power plants, pipelines, steel mills, and other critical infrastructure have proven that these measures are not 100% effective to prevent disruption and destruction from cyber attacks.
