The convergence of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) with general information technology (IT) systems has created security vulnerabilities for the traditionally isolated ICS.? The convergence is driven by: 1) the need to share process monitoring data among different corporate work groups; 2) the wide-spread adoption of Ethernet for data communication of ICS; and 3) the ability to leverage existing IT networks and backbone systems.
Corporate downsizing has led to the need for remote access to support ICS.? Remote access includes dial-up, LAN/WAN, wireless, etc.? With the flexibility of remote access come additional cyber security vulnerabilities.? This presentation will describe what is control system cyber security, how it is different than business IT security, provide some actual examples of control system cyber incidents, and provide recommendations for what companies can do to better secure their systems.
