Industrial control systems (ICS) are the workhorses of our physical world, and becoming more internet-connected, more virtualized in many cases, and more remotely accessible by the day.

Security experts worry that the growing dependence on internet-connected devices is outpacing our ability to secure them. This is particularly true within industrial and critical infrastructure because cyber threats could result in physical disruption, loss of availability and even risk to public safety.

On the other hand, many ICS professionals don’t believe there is a genuine risk to plant operations. Unfortunately, that’s not what the data shows.

Today I am glad to be writing about a good news story. That story is that Belden’s Eric Byres is being awarded the ISA (International Society of Automation) Excellence in Leadership award for his contributions to the automation industry in the area of industrial security.

We all agree that SCADA and Industrial Control System security needs to improve. However there is a lot of disagreement on what exactly needs to happen to make security for industrial systems easier to deploy and more effective. Last week’s blog exchange between me and Dale Peterson, is just one example of those differences. Now this week I am going to go in a different direction when it comes to improving security.

Something I believe industry urgently needs is better standards for information exchange between security solutions.

It is great to have the latest security technologies like VPNs, anti-virus (AV), firewalls, IDS, etc. on your plant floor. Unfortunately getting them to interact with each other can be like pulling teeth.

This is an excerpt from the Think Forward blog by Ernie Hayden at verizonbusiness.com.

In a move that may be helpful for critical infrastructure asset owners, on July 23 the Industrial Control Systems Joint Working Group (ICSJWG) published a new document on a framework for disclosing Industrial Control System (ICS) vulnerabilities.

Common Industrial Control System Vulnerability Framework
Industrial Control Systems Joint Working Group (ICSJWG), which was established by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Control Systems Security Program, published the document - Common Industrial Control System Vulnerability Framework. The document was developed with the intention of providing consensus-based guidance to vendors and system integrators in helping them create ICS vulnerability disclosure policies.
