Supply chain attacks and OT risks are not new, but they got taken to new lengths by cyber adversaries in 2021. The outlook for 2022: More of the same, says Jim Richberg of Fortinet. But he has ideas on how governments worldwide can improve their defenses and security postures.
Cybersecurity experts worry about attacks and ransomware directed at the 70,000 water and wastewater facilities in the U.S. In November 2020, the Hampton Roads Sanitation District was infected with Ryuk ransomware. Fortunately, its operational technology systems were unaffected, and it recovered.
There is a safer and potentially more profitable way to
conduct business along the manufacturing enterprise –
and the funny thing is it has been here all the time.
By applying API RP 754 and extending it with edge
analytics, it is possible for manufacturers to create a process safety
Digital transformation is well established in the business IT space, but it’s a different story for industrial process
control. Because reliability and safety are so critical to industries like oil and gas, these industries are more
cautious about adopting the newest technologies.
But what are the best ways to...
Securing operational technology (OT) systems for critical
infrastructure requires identifying and tracking a complete inventory
of all OT and IT endpoints. Only with a comprehensive inventory
that includes configuration data can companies protect against
unauthorized change, achieve compliance, mitigate risk...
CISOs need to be open to ideas and suggestions from their peers and other functions and exhibit thought leadership to establish collective defense thinking in fighting threats, says Steven Sim Kok Leong, president of ISACA, Singapore chapter and chair of OT-ISAC Executive Committee.
As the frequency and severity of cyber attacks on industrial organizations increase, defenders are struggling to keep ahead of threats. Security leaders know that a unified IT and OT approach is critical to protecting the safety and availability of operations, but are faced with cultural and technical differences...
Congress has passed the $1.2 trillion physical infrastructure bill, which will inject $1.9 billion in new cybersecurity funding for the federal government. The bill, long held up in Congress, passed the House on Friday and moves to the desk of President Joe Biden, who plans to sign the measure into law.
While doing digital transformation, CISOs tend to look more at technology and try to adapt it without making the distinction between technologies that are must-have and good to have. Krishnamurthy Rajesh of ICRA says CISOs must analyze risks, update security, and change the mindset of employees.
Findings from CyberTheory's 2021 Third Quarter Review indicate that criminals are exploiting the open-source supply chain, and those exploits are proving much more difficult to identify, defend and stop in terms of complexity and depth than we've seen before, says CyberTheory's director, Steve King.
The business benefits of digital transformation in grid operations are tremendous, but this progress increases cyber risk to Operations Technology (OT) in the areas of safety, unscheduled downtime, and negative impact on corporate brand.
The good news is that there are practical steps utilities can take to enhance...
As enterprises invest heavily in digital transformation, industrial cybersecurity will increasingly serve as the critical enabler for safely and securely advancing business goals through technological innovation.
While advancing connectivity and digitalization of operational technology (OT) provides significant...
Industrial asset owners know that protecting the integrity of their systems is critical for maintaining operations, but the challenges around cybersecurity vulnerabilities make that job much harder. As environments become more connected, and attackers become more advanced, staying a step ahead has never been more...
U.S. federal agencies issued a joint advisory around potential cyber threats to the nation's water facilities. They cite "ongoing malicious cyber activity - by both known and unknown actors - targeting the IT and OT technology networks, systems and devices" of U.S. water and wastewater systems.
