CXP GROUP: ICS SECURITY AND BUSINESS IMPACTS
The benefits of connected ICS are clear, but so are the risks and dangers of not protecting them. Identity and access lie at the heart of securing the organization. Monitoring and controlling accounts reduce many of the risks from unprotected control systems, but organizations must ensure that the whole business invests completely into a ubiquitous security strategy for protecting the entire organization and compensating for the lack of imperviousness between IT and OT networks.
“For decades, Industrial Control Systems have evolved completely separately from traditional IT, but since the 2000s, many have switched to commodity hardware and standard networking protocols, with controlling software running on off the shelf (OTS) operating systems, including various iterations of Windows and Linux. With the onset of digital transformation, those ICS are coming in from the cold as organizations seek to connect OT to the main IT architecture to optimize profits and operations.”
