Patch management for control systems
This guideline provides suggestions for an effective cyber security patch management strategy for control systems, addresses potential risks that can apply to some electricity sector organizations, and
provides practices that can help mitigate the risks.
System protection profile for industrial control systems
The first draft of the System Protection Profile for Industrial Control Systems — designed to present a cohesive, cross-industry, baseline set of security requirements for new industrial control systems — is available for download and review.
U.S. makes securing SCADA systems a priority
Wary of the increasing number of online attacks against industrial control systems, the U.S. government has begun a major push to secure
the systems used to control and monitor critical infrastructure.
Is cybersecurity ready for industrial control?
Enhanced scalability and security agents provide comprehensive protection for the real-time control environment and enables compliance
with NERC CIP standards.
Invensys unveils secure wireless strategy for plant, enterprise
A wireless strategy utilizing a comprehensive managed network approach
centers around shared access point technology, common data and security
models for all wireless devices.
Mission-critical systems still vulnerable to attacks
Protecting industrial SCADA systems has become a major concern. Read
how systems are not only vulnerable to attacks through their non-Internet-based
control systems, but other, outdated control systems, as well.
Symantec, Telvent partner to deliver SCADA security
The announced partnership will provide a solution for protecting SCADA
systems used for oil and gas pipelines against malicious or unintentional
events that could result in downtime or a more serious incident.
Your chance to participate in an important standards review
Automation leaders from around the world are leading the way in defining
consensus approaches to securing manufacturing and control systems.
You are invited to contribute to that effort by reviewing the work of
the committee. Go here to choose the document you'd like to review.
This web site offers news and opinion on best practices, future trends, security standards, vendor offerings, and all other issues related to SCADA security.
