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.
