Attivo for ICS-SCADA in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards

American Security Today

You can’t go a day without finding an article on the impending threat to the energy sector and a country’s critical control operations.

Cyberattacks on these targets can and have resulted in disruption of critical local, regional, and national government and commercial infrastructures.

As a result, when they are breached, the impact on societies they serve stands to be catastrophic.

The damages to property and ensuing theft will amount tens of billions of dollars, and the loss of life will be significant.

The threat risk for an attack on industrial control systems can be as big as a high-profile attack on the energy grid, but it can also appear in less obvious places – like universities, casinos, and even sports centers which often operate with similar environments and infrastructure of a small city.

With Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems becoming increasingly vulnerable to sophisticated and persistent hackers, current security solutions no longer offer the protection needed to defend against a cyber attack.

An effective strategy to secure your SCADA network is to take a defense-in-depth approach with deception technology.
