Rogue squirrels or humans – limiting the damage is what’s important

The recent Cyber Squirrel Project report captured the imagination of many. While the image of rogue squirrels storming a nuclear power plant is amusing, the scale of the threat they pose is relatively tame. However it shouldn’t be ignored and for that reason the report should be applauded as it highlights a very important issue – that critical infrastructure is under constant threat of disruption.

Ransomware Demo Holds Industrial Systems Hostage

Edgard Capdevielle, CEO at Nozomi Networks, argued that hackers have already been able to turn the lights off in Ukraine by attacking power stations there, and claimed human lives could be at risk if industrial systems become a major target for hackers.

New Ransomware To Target Industrial Systems

The demonstration by researchers of Georgia Institute of Technology at RSA, showing how water treatment PLCs [programmable logic controllers] can be susceptible to ransomware, is cause for concern – but not unsurprising. The difference between an enterprise falling foul of malware, and a water treatment plant, is the severity of the potential impact as the attack vectors are the same.

UK Hit By 188 High-Level Cyber-Attacks In Three Months

Philip Hammond is right in his observation that the risks of escalating cyberattacks extend far beyond the Internet of Things (IoT) from ‘hacked kettles and fridges to cars.’ It’s the really big ‘things’ like power plants, transportation systems, water, and other infrastructure that are worth special protective measures, from both industry and governments, whether the threat comes from foreign governments, terrorists, hacktivists, or well-organised criminal organisations.

Wireless comms in manufacturing: improving safety and efficiency

There’s growing use of machine learning to provide users with greater visibility of industrial processes. Andrea Carcano, co-founder of and chief product officer at Nozomi Networks, says that this has several benefits. From a cybersecurity perspective it allows a system to interpret commands and understand if someone’s attempting to disrupt the manufacturing process. A classic example of this type of attack is Stuxnet – a worm identified in 2010 – which is believed to have altered the behaviour of uranium enrichment centrifuges to slow down Iran’s nuclear development programme.

Interview: Andrea Carcano, Nozomi Networks

Talking to chief product officer and co-founder of Nozomi Networks Andrea Carcano, he said that even after the lessons learned from Stuxnet, there is little in the way of authentication or encryption in modern SCADA systems. Particularly once inside the network, he said that the only thing you need to know is the language of the programmable logic controller (PLC) or remote terminal in order to gain access.

Squirrel Threat To Critical Infrastructure

“While the image of rogue squirrels storming a nuclear power plant is amusing, the scale of the threat they pose is relatively tame. According to Cyber Squirrel 1, having tracked 1,700 animal related outages, just 5 million people were affected – a crude calculation puts that at almost 3,000 per outage. In contrast, if a malicious actor successfully penetrates the critical infrastructure, the scale of the devastation has the potential to be immense. An illustration is the very targeted cyber attack launched against the Ukraine in 2015, that single event affected 225,000 people.

Ukraine Power Grid Hacked Again

“While hardly a surprise that this has now been confirmed as a cyber attack, it demonstrates a worrying trend. I think the suggestion that the Ukraine is being used as a ‘testbed for refining attacks’ is highly likely and what’s particularly concerning is that the attackers could have caused far more damage than they did.

Ukraine Power Outage Confirmed as Cyber Attack

“This illustrates that there are adversaries, with both intent and ability, to launch attacks and cause damage to the critical infrastructure of every country around the globe, and this threat must not be ignored,” argued Nozomi Networks founder Andrea Carcano.

“Cyber resiliency through defence in-depth measures is needed, and that includes network segmentation, firewalls and visibility solutions. All protectors must re-examine their ICS cybersecurity programs carefully and arm themselves with technology that will enable them to detect and respond to attacks, in real time, if they’re to keep the attackers out and the power on.”

Think about the recent IoT-botnet attack, the Ukraine attack, etc – all were made possible by inadequate security architectures/solutions of such complex cyber-physical systems.”

The Real Cybersecurity Issues Behind the Overhyped ‘Russia Hacks the Grid’ Story

Companies typically rely on the separation between corporate IT networks and OT systems to bar entry from one to the other. But “we’re too comfortable relying on that separation,” Edgard Capdevielle, CEO of industrial control system cybersecurity startup Nozomi Networks, said in a Tuesday interview. With the increasing level of automation and interconnection between IT and OT, “that is a permeable wall; it is not a brick wall," he said.

Following the news that ThyssenKrupp has suffered a cyber-attack, Andrea Carcano, Founder and Chief Product Officer at Nozomi Networks commented below.

“Steel mills and other critical infrastructure components are now in the cross-hairs of sophisticated and well organised hackers whose goals of malicious disruption are broad and varied. Stepping up the detection of cyberattacks of IP theft and, more importantly, the industrial control systems that operate critical infrastructure facilities from manufacturing to energy production will lead cybersecurity priorities in 2017.”
