Industrial Automation and COntrol Systems Security Standard. System security requirements and security levels.
Critical infrastructure policymakers are advocating the foundation of a new entity, the Institute for Electric Grid Cybersecurity, along with a new set of guidelines, to better protect the North American electric grid from cyber-attacks and determine how to respond if the grid is ever compromised.
The information security field is full of certifications – CompTIA, GIAC, CHE, ISC2 CISSP, CISM, with a vast number of areas and directions within these families. In the industrial space, the most “unsecured” enterprise sector compared to well-established information security practice
With cybercriminals becoming increasingly active, industrial control system (ICS) operators and manufacturing & process industries – including oil, gas and petrochemicals – plus companies and government organisations that run critical infrastructure, have never faced such significant security risks
NIST announces the release of Special Publication 800-82, Revision 2, Guide to Industrial Control System (ICS) Security. Special Publication 800-82 provides guidance on how to improve the security in Industrial Control Systems (ICS)
The National SCADA Test Bed Program from Idaho National Laboratory (INL). The nation’s electric power grid. This system and the digital components that operate it are reliable and efficient, but often lack sufficient security measures to protect them from new and emerging cyber threats.
More than 7,600 different power, chemical and petrochemical plants may still be vulnerable to a handful of SCADA vulnerabilities made public this week.
ICS-CERT works to reduce risks within and across all critical infrastructure sectors by partnering with law enforcement agencies and the intelligence community and coordinating efforts among Federal, state, local, and tribal governments and control systems owners, operators, and vendors.
Much of Europe’s critical infrastructure which resides in sectors such as energy, transportation,water supply is largely managed and controlled by SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems, a subgroup of Industrial Control Systems (ICS).
