Industrial Control systems and the Increase in attacks

When I first started working in heavy manufacturing, we did not worry about hackers attacking our systems as most of them were air gapped from the main systems.  However, this changed quickly (actually almost too rapidly) and now we are seeing these systems/processes becoming the main target of the hackers.

 

This article details how these attacks are increasing.

Re: Industrial Control systems and the Increase in attacks

 

Cybersecurity requirements recently mandated by the regulatory authority include an additional set of controls for ICS, but I've overlooked those since we're in the Academic sector.

 

A recent post on the community was asking about a passive asset discovery system; this article talks about why that can be beneficial in a ICS environment.
