Network & Networking Security

Industrial Control System (ICS) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) cybersecurity are skyrocketing in significance, but the attention to the issue is not rising at a similar level. If a process facility relied on conventional security methods - and on security product manufacturers to create patches for security breaches - it would only be partially protected. Firewalls and air gaps are good security precautions but are only part of a complete security solution.

Due to advancing technologies, automation systems utilize digital network infrastructures and if these systems are not secured properly they can be very susceptible to hazardous risks. Maintaining a secure automation system can be achieved by using proven steps that consist of industry best practices, which are customized to meet the desired level of security required.

Current technology abounds, even in industrial work environments. However, there are inherent risks to using smart technology as any internet-connected device can be hacked. We need to be smart about how we implement smart devices.
