Industrial System Cybersecurity

A hidden part of our every day life

Digital transformation – and what then?

From production to Building Management System, from smart homes to energy production, transportation and healthcare: Operational Technology (OT) is everywhere around us. The digital revolution progresses across all industries.  Especially in production, OT systems were traditionally thought to be “protected” by an air-gap separating them from the highly connected (and thus highly vulnerable) IT-world.
This is no longer the case as IT/OT convergence, which has already progressed for quite a while, was accelerated by the increasing use of IT technologies in industrial systems. This fusion brings with it a completely new world of benefits, efficiency, and flexibility. But it also opens plants, shop floors, production facilities and vital infrastructure to the darker world of traditional IT threats.

According to a study conducted by Forrester and Fortinet, a few of the main challenges are:

  • The convergence is accelerating as more and more solutions are Ethernet based, virtualization is also getting more important, many OT devices are using standard software.
  • Critical infrastructure professionals have many security concerns, including emerging risks from Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) devices and the need for compliance.
  • The typical organization has not deployed a strategic, integrated approach to OT security, deploying multiple technical point solutions on different timelines instead, and in some cases, relying on third parties.
  • Organizations tend to find themselves stuck in a reactive stance toward security, and as a result, the vast majority have suffered breaches in their industrial control systems (ICS).

With new power comes new responsibility

57%

of production sites do not have any protection of their industrial work stations.

40%

of industrial plants have a direct connection to the internet.

53%

50

out of 320 companies know they have been hacked at least three times.

50+

international and national regulatory standards have to be followed (NIST SP800, Guides ANSSI, IEC 62443, ISO/IEC 27000 etc.).
