To See or Not to See – Visibility vs. Connectivity in ICS Environments

Confusion between the concepts of visibility and connectivity frequently leads to suboptimal outcomes in organizations that must defend industrial controls systems from cyberattacks. The naïve view that monitoring a network makes it more exposed to attack ignores the cybersecurity benefits gained from ongoing monitoring and detection of misconfigurations, third-party connectivity, and adversary activity.
To illustrate this point, this session will analyze common ICS reference architectures from various industries, overlay a representative threat model, and the pros, cons, and options for introducing network-based cybersecurity monitoring in each case. We will discuss using a Collection Management Framework (CMF) to develop requirements for ICS defense and translate those requirements into a monitoring strategy. We will review key technical concepts relevant to deploying network monitoring infrastructure such as out-of-band/management networks, Network TAPs, SPAN or monitor port configuration. Lastly, we will consider potential staffing models for a Security Operations Center (SOC) tasked with defending ICS/OT assets.
