Blending Resilience and Protection to Achieve Greatest Security for Business-Viable Industrial Systems

December 13, 2018

This series of three cybersecurity whitepapers is intended for engineers and designers of industrial control processes and the systems that control those processes. Throughout the papers, we emphasize the point that data is not exhaust left-over from a sensor-heavy process, but it is the driver of future value by enabling visibility, understanding, and ever-more-precise control of the processes. However, the activities to increase value by using ever more distributed information and system connectivity potentially expose systems to risk of cyber exploitation. Paper #1 demonstrates that greater value is derived from security when clear articulation of engineering and business requirements drive security, rather than the other way around. It provides a construct to capture basic connectivity between systems as a foundation for contextualizing threats and security solutions.
