Securing Industrial Control Systems
An Intuitive Way to Understanding Industrial Cybersecurity
In this Whitepaper:
Discussing cybersecurity in Industrial Control Systems (ICS) can be challenging given the complex and intangible nature of the topic. In the 'House of ICS Security' we introduce an intuitive way to understand cybersecurity and enable users to explore and design effective solutions for a variety of threat scenarios.
- Categorizing threats & countermeasures
- Using the 'House' to discover relevant security technologies
- Navigating 'rooms' & 'drawers'
- Implementing the foundation & roof for security & stability
"IIoT and Industry 4.0 lead to increasingly interconnected control systems enabling companies to increase productivity and efficiency. However, this same interconnectivity makes organizations more susceptible to cyber threats. With the interactive model “House of ICS Security,” the threats as well as the corresponding countermeasures can be categorized on the basis of consistent criteria."
"The interactive model, offered through a website and a smartphone app, offers plant operators and security experts a shared foundation to develop customized security solutions."
"A comprehensive security strategy can only be achieved through small steps and gradual improvements – and this process actually never ends. But as it is well known, the first step is always the hardest. With the help of the House of ICS Security, this essential first step can be facilitated to great extent."
