The white paper includes:
- Lessons learned from the hacking of a U.S. water utility
- Foundational controls for security, compliance and IT
- First steps to reduce your risk exposure
From the White Paper:
"An unnamed water district, dubbed the Kemuri Water Company (KWC) in Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Digest experienced unexplained patterns of valve and duct movements over at least 60 days. It was discovered that attackers were manipulating the chemicals used to assure safe drinking water and also altering the water flow rates, causing disruptions to water distribution."
"We will continue to see overall ICS cyber risk increase as industrial and critical infrastructure becomes more interconnected and even field I/O becomes Internet-aware."
