Future Challenges and Changes in Industrial Cybersecurity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While there are still under-protected plants, ARC research shows that most industrial companies have implemented cybersecurity programs to protect their facilities and SCADA systems.  Most of these initiatives have followed recognized standards and guidelines like IEC 62443, NERC CIP, etc.  These documents provide comprehensive guidance for a specific set of use cases given certain scope boundaries. 

These efforts have significantly reduced the risks of cyber-attacks on our critical infrastructure.  However, recent developments and trends suggest that more needs to be done.  Assumptions underlying current programs are too restrictive for the real needs of industry and infrastructure organizations.  The cybersecurity challenges that industrial companies and infrastructure organizations face span the full IT-OT-IoT spectrum.  Broader deployment of automation products in smart cities and commercial operations also demands a broadening of the potential use cases.   

This presentation will include a discussion of these expanded challenges and the gaps that need to be filled.  Recommendations on the kinds of changes that are required will also be presented.
