3 TRENDS THAT MAKE AUTOMATION A MUST FOR SECURING INDUSTRIAL CONTROL SYSTEMS
Every time I flip a light switch or run water for my daily shower, I’m not thinking of the potential security risks within our power plants or water suppliers. I just take it for granted that the computers working behind the scenes keep things running smoothly. These computers, also known as Industrial Control Systems (ICS), control the physical world of our most critical infrastructure. They monitor and control the processes responsible for machinery used in power generation and distribution, manufacturing, water treatment plants, HVAC, and many other industries. The reality is that some of these systems were not designed with security in mind. Historically, these systems were not connected to the Internet or an IT network. They existed in an air-gapped environment, disconnected from all other networks. The disconnected nature of ICS is quickly becoming outdated. Systems are more connected than ever before and can be accessed remotely by operators. Three trends are increasing the vulnerability of our ICS environments. READ MORE
