Overcoming IT/OT Cybersecurity Convergence Roadblocks

Overcoming IT/OT Cybersecurity Convergence Roadblocks

Many organizations still view IT and OT cyber security as unique issues to address, yet the need for convergence has never been more important. Attackers exploit the security gaps between IT and OT technologies exactly because those responsible for their defense have different priorities.

While challenging to achieve, IT / OT convergence will eliminate security gaps and reduce overall cyber risk. Read on to learn more.

Open Source Software Exposes ICS Device Vulnerabilities to Hackers

Open Source Software Exposes ICS Device Vulnerabilities to Hackers

It’s disturbing to think that disruption and damage to our critical infrastructure can happen by simply combining the use of OSS tools with malicious intent. Fortunately, those same tools are being used by ICS security researchers around the world to increase industrial control systems cyber security.

Read on to learn why transportation, communications, energy and emergency services are so exposed, and what’s being done to close the ICS cyber security gap.

Black Hat: Understanding TRITON, The First SIS Cyber Attack

Black Hat: Understanding TRITON, The First SIS Cyber Attack

Today at Black Hat USA I am part of a team speaking about the landmark TRITON malware attack. We are presenting new research on TRITON, releasing two tools to help defend against it and publishing a white paper summarizing our findings.

The TRITON malware attack went beyond other industrial cyber attacks by directly interacting with a Safety Instrumented System (SIS). Asset owners should act immediately to secure their SIS — and the information in our white paper will help.
